Universities are currently placing greater emphasis on teaching. Many are increasing their commitment to teaching and exploring ways to improve and reward teaching excellence. A teaching portfolio is an important document that showcases a teacher’s achievements in teaching. It includes selected documents and materials on teaching activities and presents evidence of their effectiveness. Having a comprehensive teaching portfolio has been vital to my success in receiving national teaching excellence awards. This paper will report on the processes I followed to develop my teaching portfolio, demonstrating how this is an important exercise in self-reflection. For example, to prepare my teaching portfolio I had to (a) understand my personal teaching style, (b) scrutinise what I did in the learning and teaching environment, and (c) examine the impact of my teaching on student learning. This paper will also outline a typical table of contents in a teaching portfolio. For instance, it will show how a teaching portfolio should integrate material from oneself and others, and highlight the learning outcomes. Finally, this paper will consider the importance of documenting how teaching has evolved over time.
