Reflective Teaching Portfolio Short Course

GMCTE Course with Wenona Partridge & Debbie Pushor

MURRAY G3

The aim of this short course is to bring together a community of teachers (including graduate students, faculty, sessional lecturers, advisors, and staff) who are interested in developing and discussing a reflective teaching or advising practice. For tenure track faculty, reflecting on one’s teaching practice provides a solid foundation on which to build a case file, similarly for sessionals, graduate students, staff, and advisors, reflecting on your teaching or advising practice will help rejuvenate your practice and prepare you well when applying for academic, staff, or teaching positions.

All classes held once each month on a Tuesday, from 1:30 - 4pm, in Murray G3 (to the left of the circulation desk in the Murray Library).

Topic schedule, each Tuesday:

  • September 20: Reflecting on Your Teaching Practice
  • October 18: Developing a Teaching Philosophy Statement
  • November 22: Selecting Best Evidence from Your Teaching Practice 
  • December 6: Reflecting on Feedback from Your Teaching Practice
