CON10.12 - Why Am I Here? Creating a Teaching Mission

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Much has been written on the development of the teaching portfolio and the crafting of a teaching philosophy. Although the philosophy statement expresses and demonstrates teaching practices, approaches, and rationale, there is an even deeper and more essential level to our teaching lives that deserves time and attention: our ultimate aims as teachers. Using established techniques for building and defining mission statements for individuals and organizations, this interactive session will invite participants to reflect on the most deeply felt values and aspirations that they hold as teachers and how to refine and distill those values into a succinct and inspiring mission statement.
