Topics Covered


M.C. Escher Hand with Reflecting Sphere The Reflective Teaching Portfolio 
The Reflective Teaching Portfolio is an intrinsic part of the program. An ongoing, reflective journal of a faculty member's evolution as a teacher , it is a valuable and widely recognized professional development tool. The reflective teaching portfolio includes a statement of teaching philosophy, responsibilities and goals, as well as key evidence showing how these goals are being reached. For this certificate program, the portfolio should focus on the 1.) role of technology in one's teaching practice, 2.) reflection on the impact of technology on teaching and learning and 3.) ideas you may have to infuse technology in your teaching.
