Teaching Portfolio Construction Session

Monday, January 28th, 5:00 – 6:30 p.m., Kittredge Auditorium, HBC 

The Graduate School is offering an interactive workshop designed for all graduate students with an interest in beginning, constructing, and/or improving your Teaching Portfolio. These portfolios are used in the application process for several awards and programs at Syracuse University (including the Teaching Mentor position, the Outstanding TA Award, and the Certificate in University Teaching) and are sometimes required for job or grant applications. We will discuss how to create, organize, and present aspects of the portfolio including the teaching philosophy, instructional evaluations, and teaching materials. We will also discuss some ways to create and organize an online portfolio. 

No registration is necessary, but please contact Shawn Loner (scloner@syr.edu) with any accommodation requests.
