The Teaching Portfolio II: Evidence of Teaching Ability, Student Evaluations, & Sample Syllabi

Graduate job seekers are often asked to submit evidence of teaching ability, student evaluations, or sample syllabi together with other application materials.  What should you submit as your “evidence of teaching ability”?  How many student evaluations should you submit, and which ones?  What is the purpose of a sample syllabus used during the job application process, and how does it differ from a course syllabus?  How can annotations be used to enhance your portfolio?  This workshop will focus on three of the most common elements of the teaching portfolio, providing participants with an overview as well as practical guidelines.
