Teaching Portfolios

What is a teaching portfolio?

A Teaching Portfolio is a record of ones teaching skills, interests and aspirations. In many senses, it is a document that summarizes a person's teaching much like their curriculum vitae outlines their research lives. In the Portfolio a person selects analyzes, and comments on documents that demonstrate their teaching of psychology.

How are teaching portfolios used?

  • As an analytical self-reflection designed to enhance one's teaching
  • To document teaching effectiveness
  • To enable one to strengthen the relationship between teaching and research
  • As supporting evidence of professional expertise
  • As a legacy and point of departure for discussions within the department

How may I produce a teaching portfolio?

The Teaching Resource Center holds workshops periodically. Check with their home page The Teaching Portfolio.
