Teaching Dossier Review

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please allow a minimum of 3 weeks for the review of your dossier. This allows us sufficient time to assign the dossier to a TATP staff member and for that staff member to provide feedback on your document. We will not be able to review dossiers without 3 weeks notice. For any dossier submissions between May and August, please allow 6-8 weeks for review. If you have any questions, please contact services.ta@utoronto.ca.

Please note that TATP regularly offers a workshop on preparing the teaching dossier as part of its Workshop Series for Graduate Students and TAs. Please check the workshop page to see when the next session is being offered.

Due to demand, TATP staff are no longer able to provide consultations for the beginning stages of assembling a dossier. We require that all requests for consultation are accompanied by a complete working draft of the dossier. For information on how to put together a dossier, please review the extensive information available in Developing & Assessing Teaching Dossiers: A Guide for University of Toronto faculty, administrators and graduate students (a CTSI publication). Further, there are examples of dossiers from many disciplines available for reference in the CTSI resource library.

The TATP will only review dossiers for TAs/Graduate Students enrolled in AUTP certificate program. As of April 1, 2015 we are unable to review teaching dossiers for job applications.

We are also unable to review dossiers for those who are either not members of Unit 1 or who are not enrolled in SGS.

If you meet the above criteria, you can submit your dossier for review with a TATP staff member by completing the ON-LINE FORM) then send your dossier to the TATP via email at services.ta@utoronto.ca or drop off a hard copy at the CTSI office.

All students who intend to use their teaching dossier for the purpose of entering the academic job market are asked to also have the document reviewed by a faculty member in their home department. The TATP office is a first stop for getting feedback on a dossier, but the teaching dossier should also be reviewed by a faculty member with expert content knowledge in your field.
