"When applying to be an assistant professor, you will be interviewed on your research experience, personal teaching philosophy, and technical understanding of your field of study. The university will want to be sure your research interests and teaching style are compatible with the programs you will be a part of. To become an assistant professor is usually the first step taken by students who have received their doctorates on their paths to becoming full professors."
What is your teaching philosophy?
All instructors have an idiosyncratic strength, which they should leverage to challenge students in precisely the way that represents their best source of value to the students. As instructors identify different learning styles among students (especially in non-traditional environments, which characteristically have more extremes of learning styles than traditional environments), they should mainly apply their range of teaching methods to their idiosyncratic strengths, rather than to their ancillary competencies. That way, students will benefit the most from those areas in which instructors are actually most competent.
