Developing Your Teaching Dossier

TEASS - Teaching Assessment

Developing your teaching dossier is the most effective way to document effective teaching for academic job applications, for winning teaching awards, and for self-reflection towards a goal of instructional improvement. Best practice indicates that the most important part of the dossier is the narrative statement that guides the reader through the supporting documentary evidence. This workshop will assist you in developing your narrative and will outline an effective structure for you to organize your materials. The workshop is particularly useful for graduate students who plan to apply for teaching jobs at other institutions and for any teacher at any level (local to national) wanting to nominate someone (or be nominated) for a teaching award.
