The Teaching Dossier: An Introduction to Documenting Teaching Activity and Effectiveness
Wednesday, Oct. 9, 12-1 p.m.
This session will introduce a suggested content and organizational framework for your teaching dossier and will provide advice on how to get started.
When applying for promotion or tenure, academic jobs, or teaching awards, and when undergoing pre-tenure review, one must demonstrate effectiveness and scholarly competence as a teacher. These sessions will provide opportunities to learn how to document your teaching in a teaching dossier, which describes and provides evidence of an individual’s teaching philosophy, approaches, accomplishments, and effectiveness.
Participants will be given advice about the content and structure of a teaching dossier through short presentations; samples from dossiers of teaching award recipients; writing exercises; and discussion. Anyone who teaches is welcomed to attend.
