Interview questions

    Now that interview season is upon us, I'm wondering what are the most challenging questions you have faced in an interview, specifically focused towards your teaching strategies/educational philosophy?

    I've been fairly lucky in that most interviews I've experienced have been more like general chats & were not too stressful, but I have a feeling a couple of interviews I have lined up are going to be a bit more challenging. I've researched typical questions but I'm wondering if there have been any you've experienced that have really thrown you so... any advice from the more experienced members?

    I’m not experienced but interested in your post.

    I had a sonru interview recently that was so uncomfortable! I definitely need a person to bounce off.
    I was asked “what would we be missing out on by not hiring you?” All that popped into my head was witty banter!

    My favourite recently was 'what would your perfect day of teaching look like?'

  4. What's your teaching philosophy? That one caught me out.
