According to Parker Palmer (2007), "we teach who we are." The teaching dossier or portfolio is a collection of artifacts that documents your teaching expertise and growth, but it is also a narrative that contextualizes and connects experiences and beliefs about teaching. Whether you create one for job search purposes or for instructional development, your dossier can help you articulate who you are as a teacher. This workshop is geared to graduate students and faculty new to teaching. We provide examples and suggestions for creating a dossier, as well as reflective opportunities to explore your teaching self.

Presented by Jill Grose, Director, Centre for Pedagogical Innovation, and Lianne Fisher, Educational Developer, Centre for Pedagogical Innovation.
