Developing a Teaching Portfolio

Teaching portfolios are an important component of many academic job applications and the promotion process: it is never too early in your teaching career to begin developing yours. While teaching portfolios vary widely, this workshop presents some guidelines to follow and some basic strategies you can use to ensure that your portfolio will best demonstrate your teaching experience, accomplishments, and potential. Whether you are just beginning to teach or about to enter the job market, this workshop will enable you to compile and develop your best teaching portfolio.

Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to:

  • Identify the important characteristics of a teaching portfolio
  • Make decisions about portfolio contents, structure, and framing based on an understanding of its likely audience
  • Strategically compile teaching materials for use in a teaching portfolio
  • Streamline information for more impactful presentation in a teaching portfolio

This workshop may be counted toward the Professional Development concentration of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative. For more information, visit the Teaching Center's website or contact
