Overview

Since the publication of the first edition of this best-selling guide, tens of thousands of faculty have used it to prepare teaching portfolios. This third edition continues its focus on self-reflection and documenting teaching performance, and has also been significantly revised and expanded. Its straightforward approach, practical suggestions, step-by-step instructions, and field-tested recommendations will prove invaluable to those involved in evaluating and improving teaching.

Now organized into five parts, this edition includes new information on web-based electronic teaching portfolios, descriptions of how seven colleges and universities have actually implemented portfolios, and 22 new sample teaching portfolios from an array of disciplines and institutions. All were developed under the guidance of a skilled portfolio mentor.

Peter Seldin has visited hundreds of colleges and universities in the U.S. and around the world mentoring faculty and administrators on the development and use of the teaching portfolio. His vast experience is distilled in this essential resource for faculty, administrators, graduate students, and anyone who is interested in improving and evaluating teaching performance.

This book includes:

  • Time-tested strategies and proven advice for getting started and then maintaining the most effective use of portfolios

  • How portfolios can be used for promotion and tenure decisions
