Member Initiatives

Statement of Teaching Philosophy Support Group

One of the great things our members do is try to support one another for self-improvement.  VASTA Member, Diane Robinson, saw a need to help people in developing their teaching philosophy statements. For anyone in Academia, this can be a serious undertaking because it is often a part of Tenure & Promotion Materials, so she asked members of our listserv, VASTAvox, if they would like to work with one another in helping one another develop a teaching philosophy.  This has grown into the Statement of Teaching Philosophy Support Group.

If you are interested in being a part of these discussions, please contact the Tech Director. You will be added,  begin receiving email messages, and have access to VASTA's Google Apps Group. 


VASTA is a Focus Group of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE). For more information visit
