The Teaching Portfolio: A Practical Guide to Improved Performance and Promotion/Tenure Decisions
P Seldin 2004 Anker Publishing Company, Inc. Bolton, MA
There are many reasons for using teaching portfolios. Assembling and maintaining a portfolio is one method of reflecting on your teaching, a necessary step for anyone seeking to improve their teaching. Portfolios also serve to document the quality of your teaching to other people, including hiring committees and personnel (tenure/promotion) committees. A strong portfolio presents a coherent picture of your teaching, from your underlying philosophy to the end results -- your students' learning. Seldin's book provides practical advice on how to go about assembling a portfolio, and includes examples of portfolios from many different academic disciplines.
