Teaching portfolios – for career and development
Session Time and Location
Thu, 7 Jun 2018
9:45am to 10:45am
Teaching portfolios are often used as instruments to select among candidates for academic positions and teaching awards. Despite the increasing use of teaching portfolios, there are still questions raised regarding the validity of this method of documenting teaching achievements. In this workshop I invite the participants to try a step-wise method developed for connecting the teaching philosophy with concrete examples and authentic teaching materials (evidence) in the portfolio. The aim is to create teaching portfolios that are robust and authentic representations of the teacher’s skills. The participants will experience the stepwise model and learn about the rationale for each step.
