The teaching portfolio describes and documents a faculty member’s achievements in teaching. As part of a multi-faceted teaching evaluation program, it provides a rich picture of teaching that can be used for making personnel decisions. It is also a means for self-reflection on teaching, leading to teaching improvement. The links below describe teaching portfolios, explain their multiple functions, and provide detailed guidelines for developing a teaching portfolio.
