Mike Kasprzak, TATP Curriculum Developer
The teaching dossier is a comprehensive record of teaching activities and accomplishments that is now required in applications for permanent positions at the University of Toronto and at an increasing number of institutions across North America. A statement of one’s teaching philosophy is a key part of the dossier. In this session, we will review the elements of a successful teaching dossier and discuss how to use it as a framework to document your teaching journey and for setting goals for future professional development. Since many TAs have limited teaching experience, the workshop will highlight what every TA can do to develop a meaningful teaching philosophy and dossier.
