In higher education, teaching dossiers are a requirement for many job applications, promotion and/or tenure, and teaching award nominations. Developing a teaching dossier can be a transformative experience as it provides the opportunity to reflect upon, explore, and document your experiences, philosophy, approaches, and effectiveness.
Developing a teaching dossier takes significant time to prepare. This module has been designed to guide you through the reflective and transformative process outlined in the D O S S I E R Model: Develop your dossier; Organize, prepare and identify your purpose; State your teaching philosophy statement; Situate your teaching context; Identify you teaching approaches; Exhibit selected evidence of effectiveness and accomplishments; and Review, reflect and summarize your dossier including future goals for growth and development.
This is a guide only and your department, faculty, or institution may have specific requirements to follow.
