The "Developing a Reflective Teaching Portfolio" short course will be offered again this Fall, 2014, for faculty, sessional lecturers, instructors, staff and graduate student teachers.
The focus of this short course is on developing a reflective teaching portfolio. This type of portfolio is intended to foster reflection on teaching experiences to improve learning. Reflective portfolios are useful formative tools to document, assess, and improve one's teaching practice on an ongoing basis. In contrast, professional portfolios are often required by academic hiring committees or when applying for teaching awards, promotion, or tenure. For tenure track faculty, the reflective portfolio is an excellent foundation for building a case file.
