5 important items for teaching portfolio
« on: September 15, 2015, 05:02:29 PM »
Must-Have Teacher Portfolio Items
Teaching Philosophy:
Your philosophy of education statement is your interpretation of what YOU think teaching and learning means. Included in your statement should be a brief description of how you teach and why you teach that way.
Resume
This is the first glimpse prospective employers get of you, so you better make it stand out. All of the items you list on this document will serve as a catalyst for the rest of your portfolio. Focus on making it look professional and include certification, education, teaching experience,professional goals and related qualifications.
Degree/Certificates/Awards
Although your resume may list your degree, awards and certificates, now is the chance for you to physically show off your accomplishments. In this section of your teaching portfolio, include a copy of your degree, teaching license, awards of honor and specialized training certificates.
Planning Materials
Prospective employers will want to see proof that you know how to prepare lesson plans and teach them. For this section of the portfolio, include a thematic unit along with curriculum standards for each activity.  It's a good idea to include photographs of the students participating in the activities, so the potential employer will be able have a visual of how you taught the lesson.
Additional Materials to Add:
•   Lesson plans
•   Field trips
•   Exam sheets
•   Syllabi
•   Interactive Bulletin Boards
Letters of Recommendation
You have put a lot of hard work and dedication into being a teacher, and now it's time to get credit for it. This section is essential to have in your portfolio because it gives potential employers the opportunity to learn about what kind of teacher you are. Include letters from past employers, college professors and supervisors.

Dr.Wendy Garland, along with the help of DIU IT team has been able to create a unique platform named DIU Teaching-Learning Community(DIUTLC) to share and learn about different things regarding development of the faculties.This can be a very useful resource and sharing platform to develop ourselves for ensuring quality teaching and learning.
