What is a teaching portfolio? How do I start preparing and developing a teaching portfolio at NUS? This introductory session provides faculty members with an overview of how to develop a portfolio and aims to help you to start thinking about reflecting on and evidencing your own teaching practice. Aside from playing a role in documenting one’s achievement as an academic teacher, a teaching portfolio is further a tool for reflecting upon ongoing professional learning and personal growth. One of the main goals of this session is to examine the key components of a teaching portfolio: the preface and the teaching statement, which consists of a teaching philosophy and 2-3 impact narratives that provide evidence in support of claims as to one's achievement. A second goal is to consider how these components can be put together into a coherent narrative to demonstrate one's strengths, areas of growth, and one’s reflection on practice. This workshop leads to two further sessions, namely writing seminars on impact narratives and the teaching philosophy statement. Following this introductory session, optional one-to-one consultations to discuss your own teaching portfolio are available on request.

Who should attend: Academic staff interested in documenting their teaching for promotion and other purposes. This session is a prerequisite for the writing seminars (Sessions 2 & 3).
