A “teaching portfolio” is a curated exhibition of your education, experience, and effectiveness as a teacher. Portfolios have a variety of uses, including:
- Preparing job applications for teaching positions
- Organizing teaching materials, samples, and evaluations
- Documenting your own development as a teacher
The Teaching Portfolio: A Guide for Graduate Students contains information on the nature and purpose of a teaching portfolio, with links to other useful resources and websites. You may also copy the Google Apps Teaching Portfolio Template to create your own, on-line teaching portfolio, which you can access and share even after you leave the University of Wisconsin system.
