Teaching Portfolio Resources

Our own Web site, Landing an Academic Job, has a page on creating a Teaching Portfolio, which includes suggestions for format and content, writing exercises, and several sample components. These pages are geared towards graduate students; however, they can be helpful for faculty as well.

The Teaching Portfolio
This site from Brown University is a good source for a basic introduction to teaching portfolios, a self-inventory of teaching priorities and links to other resources on the academic job search.
