We invite you to attend a webinar organized by the National University Teaching Awards (NUTA) project team. This webinar will explore the development of teaching portfolios, not only for submission as part of institutional or teaching awards, but as part of personal branding. Portfolios are representations of particular individuals, so a portfolio should speak for an individual in their absence.

  • Time: 12:00 – 13:30

She is involved with professional and academic staff development, curriculum development and assessment projects across faculties. The co-facilitation of a university-wide Teaching Portfolio course is one such intervention. This, together with many years of experience in supporting with and evaluating Teaching Portfolios, provides the basis from which she will be sharing ideas on how to document teaching competence.
