Teaching portfolio

The individual teacher prepares an ongoing work portfolio containing all the activities under each of the six points. From this work portfolio, material is selected for different types of presentation portfolios, e.g. for use when applying for a new job or for staff development interviews.

The presentation portfolio in a job application will typically relate the six points to the requirements of the position being applied for, while the presentation portfolio at staff development interviews will focus on how the educational practice can be developed based on the future academic and educational challenges of the academic field in question.
