Preparing a Teaching Dossier

by Christopher Knapper and Susan Wilcox, Centre for Teaching and Learning, Queen's University, Canada

Preparing a Teaching Dossier The teaching dossier is an increasingly popular way for faculty to document their teaching effectiveness, both for self-improvement and for tenure and promotion. This practical guide outlines the steps in preparing a dossier, explains what to include, and shows how to review and revise a draft dossier. Five authentic dossiers are included as examples, and useful appendices include a list of possible items for a dossier, instructions on developing a statement of your teaching philosophy, and guidelines for the interpretation of student evaluations of teaching.
