The Sheridan Center offers an online, self-paced workshop to guide participants through the process of writing a teaching statement and creating a teaching portfolio during the Fall semester. Individuals with a Brown affiliation may register for the Canvas site by completing this form. This workshop culminates with the opportunity for graduate students to receive peer feedback on a draft teaching portfolio.
After completing this online workshop, participants will be able to:
- Identify effective components of a teaching portfolio
- Write a personal, reflective teaching statement
- Select and annotate teaching materials to include in a teaching portfolio
- Create a draft teaching portfolio
- Solicit feedback and revise a draft teaching portfolio
This workshop is composed of three online modules:
Module 1: Teaching Portfolios: What & Why?
Module 2: Creating a Teaching Statement
Module 3: Feedback & Revision
These modules are designed to be worked through sequentially. Each module consists of readings and activities designed to help participants complete a draft of their teaching portfolio.
Graduate Student participants who complete all three modules are eligible to register to attend an optional peer feedback session on either October 24, 4-5 pm or October 30, 4-5 pm.
Enrollment in this online workshop is offered on a rolling basis and participants may join at any time. However, graduate students who wish to attend a peer feedback session are encouraged to register and begin the workshop in September. Participants may register here.
