Pedagogical Declarations: Feminist Engagements with the Teaching Statement
Brown, Sarah; Collard, Rosemary-Claire; Hoogeveen, Dawn
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v38 n1 p148-154 2014
To produce a teaching statement, current and aspiring teachers undertake the ostensibly straightforward task of putting their teaching philosophy onto paper. But upon close examination, the teaching statement--a seemingly simple object--is much more complex. The teaching statement is full of dual functions, many of which can be conceived of as working at cross-purposes. This paper draws on the teaching statement's history along with a collaborative and feminist mentorship methodology to highlight these dual functions. We discuss how teaching statements can be negotiated and inhabited from our perspective as early career scholars.
