Online Teaching Portfolio Institute

While the CTI is working remotely, the Teaching Portfolio Institute is being held online.

Graduate students and postdocs at Cornell, how do you document and showcase your teaching and professional experiences? By participating in this online Institute, you will have the opportunity to reflect on and synthesize your development as an educator.

What is the Online Teaching Portfolio Institute?

This Institute will introduce you to the structure and content of a typical teaching portfolio and will provide opportunities for you to start developing two of the critical components of a portfolio, the Teaching Philosophy and Diversity Statements. You will leave the Institute with a better understanding of how a teaching portfolio is developed, how it is evaluated by hiring committees, and the necessary tools to write and refine its component parts.
