The Delta Program offers a two-part workshop series each year, to help future faculty members create their teaching portfolios. Part I focuses on writing a teaching and learning philosophy. In this second session, our focus is on the broader teaching portfolio, and specifically, how to create one. You will learn about the three elements of a teaching portfolio (teaching and learning philosophy, artifacts, and reflective statement), participate in hands-on learning activities and group discussions, see examples of successful teaching portfolios, and leave with draft materials for the artifact and reflective statement elements. Registration is required.
