About This Course

Developing a Teaching Portfolio

This course consists of four sessions, which progressively guides you towards a deeper understanding of how to construct a portfolio about your teaching experiences in higher education as well as your on-going development as a university teacher. We would like to point out that teaching is a complex endeavor and documenting your teaching is an equally challenging and dynamic process. In other words, there is no 'one size fits all approach' or simple 'tips and tricks' to being a good teacher; you have to develop the knowledge, skills, values and capabilities of good university teaching over time by learning from and with other colleagues and peers. Likewise, preparing a teaching portfolio cannot be done overnight, nor over a couple of weeks - it requires effort to collect multiple sources of evidence, analyse and interpret what you have collected over time, reflect, share and evaluate your practice and to write down these insights in a coherent, consistent and meaningful way.
