Professional philosophy - A professional philosophy, or mission statement, sums up what you value in your profession and what your beliefs are about your work and goals. This section of the cover letter explains “the way we, as professionals, view our jobs, coworkers, and relationships,” our “educational/professional aspirations” and “incorporating our values into daily performance” (Bruner). https://slideplayer.com/slide/10574613/
Explain inconsistencies – (this section is optional) this space is provided for the faculty member to describe any inconsistencies in formal evaluations or student evaluations. Take this opportunity to explain any irregularities or inconsistencies. For instance, explain why you may not have two classes of student evaluations in a given semester or how you experimented one semester with a new online tool that created a major drop in your student responses. Perhaps after receiving your summative evaluation, there is something you need to explain to the committee.
*The ideal length of this section will be 3 pages single spaced.
