How to Build a Teaching Portfolio

The purpose of this forum is to expose graduate students to a professional Teaching Portfolio. This forum is useful for those who wish to continue on in academia and/or apply for various professional fellowships. Participants will see a variety of example portfolios and learn the various elements necessary for an effective and successful portfolio. We will have open discussions about the pros and cons of each example and create templates for our own teaching portfolios.

Rachel Arney is a third-year PhD student in the Integrative Conservation and Geography programs at the University of Georgia. She is excited to lead the GSAG Summer Series and provide fellow graduate students an opportunity to develop as young professionals in geography. She encourages all graduate students to attend the summer workshops, especially those who have been most impacted and isolated from the pandemic, as we will have an opportunity to create teaching portfolios and funding templates. As an Instructor of Record and Teaching Assistant herself, Rachel is uniquely prepared to guide graduate students in their academic development.
