Preparing a Teaching Dossier

Klodiana Kolomitro, Centre for Teaching and Learning


This session will introduce the nature and structure of teaching dossiers, which summarize teaching accomplishments, initiatives, and other strengths. They have a logical structure and are clearly formatted. As living documents, they are intended to grow and change as the teacher evolves. Teaching dossiers are increasingly a part of applying for academic positions and may be used in applications for academic promotion.
