Graduate Teaching Project Portfolio

Main Content

Graduate Teaching Support has developed a Teaching Portfolio with the goal in mind to help graduate students develop preliminary pedagogical skills. These preliminary skills will be developed and refined with initial and continued experiences in the classroom. In addition, the graduate student will have a mentor within the student’s department. Graduate Teaching Support will work with students to develop a teaching portfolio that will:

  1. Provide a way for the students to reflect upon their cumulative experience and,
  2. Create a document that students can show their academic departments and/or potential employers.

The teaching portfolio has been designed to be tailored to students’ requirements in their academic program and to also fit within a minimum of two (2) years of academic study or the anticipated date of graduation.  The Program consists of five (5) components:

  • 6 Workshops (minimum)
  • 2 Roundtables
  • 1 Videotaping
  • Mentoring Plan
    • Faculty observation and Student observation
  • Teaching Portfolio
    • Teaching Effectiveness Recording
      • Microteaching session
    • Syllabus
    • Curriculum Vitae
    • Statement of Teaching Philosophy
