PhD+ Workshop – Preparing the Teaching Statement and Portfolio

October 25, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm  |  Virtual and In Person


Gain tools and tips for effectively writing a teaching statement, a common document in faculty hiring and review processes and an opportunity to reflect on how your teaching supports student learning. We’ll also review how to select teaching portfolio materials that tell a compelling story of who you are as an educator.

Kendra Dority, Ph.D., has been an engaged member of the teaching and learning community at UC Santa Cruz since 2009, serving as a Teaching Fellow and Teaching Assistant in the Literature Department and as a Lecturer at Porter College before joining the Center for Innovations in Teaching and Learning in 2017. With CITL, she develops programs that build communities of practice, support equity-minded teaching, and promote active learning, and she leads the Center’s professional development opportunities for graduate students. She received her Ph.D. in Literature from UCSC.

Register by October 17th for in-person attendance in Graduate Student Commons, Room 204. The event will also be accessible virtually via Zoom. Complimentary vegan lunch provided for in-person attendees.
