The teaching portfolio must include the following items.
This will be due every January, for the previous calendar year.
The syllabus should include a brief list of topics covered, such as the chapters from the textbook(s). If your syllabus does not include this, please add it.
Do not include materials beyond the previous calendar year's 3 semesters (Spring, Summer, and Fall).
You can staple these materials together (preferred), put them in a binder, or put them on a CD-ROM.
The cover letter allows you to walk the reviewers through your materials, and point out your accomplishments. It should be short (preferably 1 page but no more than 2 pages). Please explain the significance of the materials that you include and make it clear what you contributed. For example, if you include a test, did you create all of the questions yourself, or did some come from previous exams or the textbook? For power-point slides, did you make them, copy them from an instructor's CD-ROM, or get them from another instructor? You may have obtained slides from another source, then spent time updating and adding to the slides. But if you only include the slides, we have no way of knowing how much effort you put in.
Team-work is encouraged for instructors. For example, you should meet regularly with other instructors who teach a different section of the same course in the semester that you teach it. You are welcome to attach other materials if you feel it is appropriate. Please keep in mind that brevity is appreciated.
