Preparing a Teaching Dossier

by Christopher Knapper and Susan Wilcox

Centre for Teaching and Learning, Queen's University, Canada

The teaching dossier is an increasingly popular way for faculty to document their teaching effectiveness, both for self-improvement and for tenure and promotion. This practical guide outlines the steps in preparing a dossier, explains what to include, and shows how to review and revise a draft dossier. Five authentic dossiers are included as examples, and useful appendices include a list of possible items for a dossier, instructions on developing a statement of your teaching philosophy, and guidelines for the interpretation of student evaluations of teaching.
