This unit aims to enhance university teachers' abilities to examine and articulate their own approach, practices and achievements in relation to university teaching, in ways that draw effectively on teaching and learning scholarship and practice-based evidence. Participants will prepare a university teaching portfolio document that is relevant to their particular context, needs and interests - the teaching component of an academic position or promotion application, a teaching award application, or a narrative inquiry about their teaching. The overall aim of the portfolio development process is to develop and effectively communicate a coherent, engaging, scholarly-based approach to teaching.
