It is recommended that you keep a record of your teaching, often referred to as a teaching portfolio, to assist when making future job applications.

Your portfolio should include the following items:

  • Your name
  • Contact details
  • Academic qualifications
  • Any formal training in teaching

For each course in which you have been a tutor, you may wish to record:

  • Course Name (and course code for UQ purposes)
  • Mode of teaching (tutorial, filed trip, laboratory class, etc.)
  • Number of students
  • Your role, if any, in course development
  • Your role, if any, in course administration
  • Your role in developing and/or marking assessment
    • The type of assessment (essays, short question, etc.)
    • The manner in which feedback was delivered
  • Results of
    • Students’ assessment of your teaching (for example, TEVALS)
    • Supervisor’s assessment of your teaching
    • Peer assessment of your teaching

 Keep copies of teaching materials, course evaluations as evidence of your experience and skills.
