The teaching portfolio is both a process and a product. It is at once the receptacle for evidence of achievement in teaching and the means for teachers to discern ways to achieve more. Teaching, research, and community, professional and public service are all part of your scholarship. You are not a teacher-scholar; you are a scholar. Use the teaching portfolio and this web site to help you document that scholarship."
