At Dalhousie\, candidates for faculty appointments\, re-appointment\, tenure\, or promotion are usually required to submit a teaching dossier as part of the application process. Teaching dossiers and teaching philosophies are increasingly required for faculty job applications at many institutions. In this four-part workshop\, you'll have the opportunity to think about your own teaching and how to accurately capture your practice in a dossier.\nThe Creating a Teaching Dossier workshop takes place over a two-week period each May. \nAlthough there are four scheduled face-to-face sessions included in this workshop\, you should plan to spend additional time between the sessions working on your teaching dossiers. This includes preparing a draft of your Teaching Philosophy Statement during the first week. The act of compiling a dossier requires you to closely examine your own teaching practice—to help identify strengths and challenges and guide your plans for further developing your teaching. \nPlease note: Participants enrolled in the Faculty Certificate in Teaching and Learning Program must attend both sessions in week 1 and at least one session in week 2.\nParticipants who are not enrolled in the Faculty Certificate should plan to attend both sessions in week 1 and are welcome to attend one or both sessions in week 2.\nThis workshop is intended for faculty or post-docs only. Graduate students should register for the Teaching Dossier Workshop designed for graduate students\, coming in September 2019.\nWeek 1 face-to-face sessions\nTuesday\, May 14th\, 2019 from 10:00amto 12:00pm and Friday\, May 17th\, 2019 from 10:00am to 12:00pm\nIn the Tuesday session\, you'll receive information and resources for effectively presenting your teaching ideas\, experiences\, and evidence in a teaching dossier that's tailored to your specific purpose. You'll receive examples and guidance for conceptualizing a teaching philosophy\, and you'll begin to draft a teaching philosophy statement.\nIn the Friday session\, faculty members—who have experience reading and assessing teaching dossiers as committee members for the tenure\, promotion\, and hiring processes—will describe their experiences of reading and evaluating dossiers. You will have the opportunity to ask questions.   \nAlso in this session\, you'll exchange drafts of your teaching philosophy statements\, offering and receiving peer feedback.\nWeek 2 face-to-face sessions\nWednesday\, May 22nd\, 2019 from 10:00amto 12:00pm and Friday\, May 24th\, 2019 from 10:00amto 12:00pm\nDuring the second week of the workshop\, we will hold two Teaching Dossier "Sit-ins\," where you will have dedicated time to work on your dossiers in the company of your peers. Several educational developers will be present during the sit-ins to offer feedback and advice.\nClick here to Register\nDate and Time\nStarts: Tuesday May 14\, 2019 - 10:00am\nEnds: Friday May 24\, 2019 - 12:00pm\nLocation: Killam Library\, Room B400\nCost: Free to Dalhousie employees\nAdditional Information\nThe Step-by-Step Creation of a Teaching Dossier[hyperlink]\nThe Teaching Dossier Template [DOC - 67 kB] [hyperlink]\nContact\n\nCentre for Learning and Teaching\nEmail:\n\nCost: Free\n\nAdditional Information: The Step-by-Step Creation of a Teaching Dossier\nThe Teaching Dossier Template [DOC - 67 kB]\n\nContact Information: Centre for Learning and Teaching\nEmail: LOCATION:Killam Library\, Room B400 URL: UID: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
