Teaching Portfolio Workshops & Retreats

Teaching Portfolios

A teaching portfolio is a cohesive collection of documents that communicates your philosophy of teaching, summarizes your teaching activity, provides evidence of your effectiveness, highlights student mentorship, and demonstrates a commitment to professional development.

Teaching Portfolio Retreats for Graduate Students

If you plan to teach at the university level, you will need a teaching philosophy statement and a teaching portfolio. Join members of the TLTC staff and fellow graduate students in a three-day retreat, sponsored by the Graduate School. During this event, you will review resources, work on your teaching philosophy statement and your teaching portfolio, and engage in discussions and peer-review. This is a unique opportunity for all graduate teaching students who have taught at least two semesters or anticipate entering the job market within the next two years. Retreats are free of charge for graduate students and are held annually in mid-January and mid-June. If you have questions about the retreats, please contact tltc@umd.edu.
