PLAN Workshop - Building Your Teaching Portfolio for the Job Market: How Graduate Students Can Provide Evidence of Teaching (Even Without Much Experience)

Description. How do you gather, organize, and share information about your teaching for the job market, particularly when you may not have much experience? Where do you capture your reflections about what teaching strategies and assignments work--and which ones don't--so that you can chart a course of improvement as a teacher? In this interactive session, we will consider the benefits of starting and maintaining a teaching portfolio, consider some different types of portfolios, and identify the items that should be included. 

Learning Outcomes. As a result of this session, participants will be able to: 

1. Describe key components of successful teaching portfolios;

2. Compare and contrast sample teaching portfolio outlines to consider what you might include;

3. Identify ways to highlight your teaching experience, regardless of the quanitity;

4. Begin putting together your own teaching porfolio
