That is, read this post from Notorious, PhD. about writing statements of teaching philosophies.
I love when you read something and it helps you understand something that you'd been bothered by, but never quite understood. Notorious does that in this post when she talks about the difference between a teaching philosophy and a teaching methodology. The method is what you do, the philosophy is why.
And reading teaching philosophies for past search committees (and writing my own), I was dissatisfied, but I think that clarification by Notorious explains my frustration. Thanks, Notorious!
