What is a Teaching Philosophy?
A teaching philosophy is less ethereal than the name implies. It is, quite simply, a document that describes what your goals and values are as a college teacher and what you have done in the classroom to implement these and to foster student learning. Teaching philosophies can be two pages long (but never three).
