EDPR5003: University Teaching Portfolios

This unit is designed to help you consider, articulate, develop and evidence your teaching aims, practices and achievements in a compelling and scholarly way, informed by the institutional context. By drawing on the research about teaching excellence and exploring how others have crafted cases about teaching excellence, you will have opportunities to reflect on how your disciplinary context shapes your aims and approaches to teaching, the evidence about your teaching effectiveness, and the impact of your teaching on student learning. As a result of successfully completing this unit of study students should be able to apply an enhanced understanding for crafting an engaging and rigorous account of your teaching that you can adapt for different purposes, audiences and contexts.
