Teaching Portfolio ￼ Using the Teaching Portfolio The teachers at SDU must have sound pedagogical competences and be able to plan and carry out teaching. This is one of the quality goals of SDU’s subpolicy for higher education pedagogy and professional development. In order to obtain this goal, all employees have to prepare an updated teaching portfolio. The teaching portfolio is both a documentation and a development tool in the university’s coherent quality system. Its purpose is to make visible and guarantee that all teachers possess the pedagogical and planning competences required by their position and associated tasks. The portfolio is more than a CV In order to motivate the teachers in their work with the teaching portfolio, each faculty has made a guide on how to compose a teaching portfolio. All faculties have various guides supplemented with examples. In the guides, all faculties emphasise that the portfolio is not only to function as a CV. It also includes the teacher’s reflections on his/her own practice and experiences. The teachers is to record his/her reflections when it comes to the planning, carrying out and evaluation of different types of teaching and learning activities.

The portfolio as an essential tool In future work with the portfolio, focus will be on developing models and methods that can strengthen the integration of the teaching portfolio into the performance and development reviews (MUS-Samtale). For this purpose an effort will be made to apply the performance and development reviews as part of the overall acknowledgement of the employees’ accomplishments and qualifications.
