"VITAL" Teaching Portfolio Workshop

"VITAL" stands for any educator who has "visiting", "instructor", "term", "adjunct", or "lecturer" in their titles. This workshop is designed to provide these educators with guidance and resources to document their teaching innovation and impact, which can be used for a teaching portfolio.

"VITAL" Agenda

May 10th-11th, 2022 |  Virtual Event

Workshop participants will engage with colleagues in writing and reflecting as they draft their Teaching Philosophy and a Self-Assessment Statement. By the end of this 1.5 day workshop, each participant will have a first draft of these documents, incorporating feedback and insight gained from colleagues along the way.
