Teaching Portfolios

Tools for developing and assessing a faculty teaching portfolio--both as a formative tool and as a summative evaluation of scholarly work

This site is part of an on-going dialogue at the University of Texas at El Paso on the nature of teaching as scholarly work, its development in professional terms and its review. The Introduction to Portfolios profiles the view being addressed here. Professional Reflection on the purposes, scope and methods of one's teaching are considered foundational and provide the context for Getting Feedback and assessing the quality of one's work. Likewise, Professional Development aimed towards improving (and sharing) practice is regarded as central to being a good teacher. Finally, we are exploring ways of Evaluating Portfolios. The Site Map lists (in directory format) the exercises for building a portfolio and commentary on its various components. A short guide helps those anxious to get started.
