Teaching Portfolio: Teaching philosophy statement (Writing seminar)
For NUS Staff
Credit Hours: 2.00
Fee: Free
No Available Class

As documentation of teaching achievement a portfolio requires demonstration of impact: evidence of your contributions to students’ education or, if relevant, to improving institutional practice at the university (educational leadership). Such evidence needs to be integrated into an argument rather than merely listed, with the teaching portfolio consisting of 2-3 such brief impact narratives underpinned by a statement of your teaching philosophy. Building on the workshops ’Developing a Teaching Portfolio: An Introductory Session’ and ‘Teaching Portfolio: Impact Narratives’, this hands-on writing seminar will focus on drafting a teaching philosophy statement that articulates your beliefs and values about university teaching, as well as your goals and strategies as a teacher. The seminar will provide time for working on your own teaching philosophy statement, examining and critiquing examples of other statements, and exchanging drafts for feedback. Following the session, optional one-to-one consultations to discuss your own teaching philosophy statement, impact narrative, or full teaching portfolio are available on request.

Who should attend: Academic staff interested in documenting their teaching for promotion and other purposes.
