what is a teaching portfolio
What is a “Teaching Portfolio?”
  • A skillfully assembled scholarly statement about your teaching. It contains :
    • A thesis statement (Your statement of your teaching philosophy)
    • Pieces of evidence
    • Descriptions and analysis of that evidence
    • A conclusion
the statement of teaching philosophy
The Statement of Teaching Philosophy
  • Lays out the portfolio’s thesis and provides the framework for the evidence to follow
  • It should answer two questions:
    • What do I expect my students to do intellectually (or physically, or emotionally) as a result of taking the course
    • How will I help them acquire those abilities?
pieces of evidence
Pieces of Evidence
  • Course Objectives
  • Strategies used to communicate those objectives and to help students attain them
  • Means used to evaluate students’ progress toward those goals (e.g. sample course assignments, samples of student work)
  • Efforts taken to evaluate and improve your effectiveness in these areas
what is the purpose of a teaching portfolio
What is the purpose of a Teaching portfolio?
  • To document one’s teaching as it evolved over time
  • To share one’s expertise (mentoring, legacy of best practices)
  • To serve as supporting materials (hard evidence, specific data) when applying for teaching positions (particularly in the case of TAs), or for tenure and promotion.
how do i as a ta create an effective teaching portfolio
How do I, as a TA, create an Effective Teaching Portfolio?
  • If a portfolio is too premature a step for now, start thinking about opportunities on which to build
  • Be aware of “best teaching practices” in your field
  • A fine portfolio depends on “colleagueship” (Hutchings, 1998): consult peers and colleagues.
  • Observe the teaching of your professors: develop the habit of reflecting on teaching
  • If you have not taught as an instructor of record, yet have assisted in a course: start with a course portfolio
