Recording Teaching Accomplishments-Dossier Workshop

Dr. Suzanne Le-May Sheffield, Director, Centre for Learning and Teaching

The teaching dossier or portfolio is widely used by university academic staff to document their teaching skills and responsibilities and to provide evidence of the quality of their teaching practice. In many faculties and departments at Dalhousie, candidates for appointment, re-appointment, tenure, or promotion are required to submit a teaching dossier as part of their application. In addition, faculty and graduate students may be preparing a dossier for job applications.  Beyond these purposes, the act of compiling a dossier requires university teachers to closely examine their teaching practice—an exercise that can help to identify strengths and challenges and guide plans for teaching enhancement and innovation.  This workshop will provide you with opportunities to think and talk about your approaches to teaching and learning and will outline how to best present your ideas and experiences in a teaching dossier.  Particular emphasis and attention will be paid to conceptualizing and writing a teaching philosophy.

Light refreshments will be served. Please register by emailing Kathleen Kevany, Faculty Liaison for CLT at or call ext 6700 to register with the Business and Social Science department secretary.
