Is your teaching research statement due in a few days and you haven’t even started it yet?
Are you sick of browsing through websites and haven’t found anything productive yet?
Are you running out of patience? This is the page where all your worries come to an end!
But before we tell you how to write a teaching and research statement, let’s have a look what it actually is?
Teaching study statement is usually a document of 2 to 3 pages that contains a brief summary of your work keeping in mind the interest of the reader. It describes details of your investigative work and mentions how your research fits into the broader aspect of your research field. In simple words, it tells the readers where you currently are and where you plan to go in the future.
Now that you have a clear understanding of what it actually is, let’s have a look at how we can write in three simple steps:
Compose your Teaching Philosophy:
This is the area where you will give a detailed description of your teaching background and objectives. It basically summarizes your approach towards teaching and will tell your readers how skilled and able you are in your field.
To make wok easier for you, start composing it according to the points mentioned below in order. This will help focus your attention towards the true essence of your study and will cover all the aspects necessary for this area.
Compose the Research Area:
The next step is to give specifications of your research work. This is where you will add details about the kind of research work that you have conducted and details about your investigative process. Below mentioned are a few points that you must cater to in order to compose a good research statement.
Compose The Scope Of Your Research:
This part is the simplest but most important as far as your research report is concerned. This is where you mention how your teaching and researching skills will help the target audience and make a significant impact on a broader scale.
In conclusion, another way to prepare a research statement for teaching is to list down all the important aspects and experiences of your teaching and research life and then organize them accordingly. Whichever way you choose, it should give a complete view of your teaching and research life.
