Creating a teaching portfolio

Noon to 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, February 19, 2019

Portfolios offer a way to communicate to potential colleagues your preparation and commitment to student learning and teaching. In this workshop, we will explore the purpose of and most common elements of a teaching portfolio, the steps to preparing your own, and identify campus resources to help you complete your own portfolio it in a timely and efficient manner.
