3. 投资组合:文档

Create a teaching portfolio to document and reflect on your teaching experiences. You must include an artifact representation your completion of each of the requirements for the Dean's 证书在教育学. All artifacts except the teaching philosophy and the self-assessment must be paired with a critical reflection in which you discuss the significance of the experience the artifact represents and the implications for you as a teacher. (N.B. One of the workshops offered through the TLI focuses on portfolio development.)一个可能的条目集是:

a. 个人教学理念
b. Samples of insights you have gained from observing and talking with other faculty
c. 课程评价
d. 你开发的课程大纲
e. 代表的分配和评估

Note: Many of these requirements (背景/基础知识, 第二组经验与思考, and the Portfolio) can be fulfilled or at least begun if you enroll in Education 301: Curriculum and Pedagogy Seminar (offered every fall semester); the assignments for that course can be tailored to allow you to meet all of the above criteria for the Dean’s Certificate. If you complete the course it will also appear on your transcript. 联络Alison Cook-Sather (acooksat@oyunf.com) 如果你对这个选项感兴趣.
