How can you demonstrate your teaching excellence beyond that feeling you get when you leave a class, or when a course ends? Critical, reflective and personal, the teaching portfolio is an exhibition of the breadth and depth of your teaching strengths, achievements, and philosophy. Teaching portfolios celebrate your efforts as a critical and reflective educator. They go deeper than ‘the what’ of teaching, or the content, to also articulate ‘the why’ and ‘the how’. In many ways, a portfolio is a collation of your exemplary teaching artifacts, including your personal teaching philosophy and the evidence of how you enact that philosophy. In this session, we introduce and unpack teaching portfolios, outlining the reasons why you should have one and suggesting what to include. We will make use of small group discussion and writing activities to inspire or refresh you teaching philosophy and get you thinking about what artifacts and evidence to include in your own portfolio. We also discuss ideas for formatting a portfolio, both hard copy and electronic.
