TEACHING PORTFOLIO WORKSHOP
May 13-17, 2013
What is a teaching portfolio? What purposes can portfolios serve and what advantages do they offer? Why should I develop a teaching portfolio?
A teaching portfolio is a collection of carefully selected and analyzed materials that document one’s major teaching activities and accomplishments over time. Framed by a statement of teaching philosophy and supported by relevant data, the portfolio offers a flexible, dynamic tool for self-reflection, evaluation and improvement. In short, creating a teaching portfolio is an evaluation experience for practitioners at every level.
In this week-long popular workshop now in its twelfth year at the Naval Academy, participants will:
ü discuss the purposes and uses of a teaching portfolio
ü evaluate teaching and learning style
ü draft individual teaching philosophy statements
ü learn about what materials to gather for the portfolio
ü learn practical tips about what does and doesn’t work
ü work with a mentor/coach to facilitate the portfolio process
The workshop will meet M-W-F from 830 – 1200. Coaches will be assigned to each participant who will then meet as needed outside of the workshop times.
