Teaching Dossiers for Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows with Dr. Stephanie Chu

December 01, 2014

Are you planning to pursue a career as a tenure-track faculty member? If so, then you will need to prepare a teaching dossier at some point in order to document your practice, approaches, and evolution in the classroom. 

A teaching dossier is not only an important tool for tenure and promotion, but can help facilitate self-reflection and professional development (source).

As well, many teaching dossier components, such as teaching philosophy statements and research statements may be required for faculty job applications.

In this session, Dr. Stephanie Chu, Teaching and Learning Centre Director will guide participants through the components of a teaching dossier, review examples, consider commonalities and differences across the disciplines and work on content for their own dossiers.

When: January 28, 1- 4 pm.

Where: Burnaby Campus

This session is brought to you in partnership by the Teaching and Learning Centre and the Office of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Fellows APEX Certificate Program.
