Portfolio Development: A Journey of Self-Reflection
Unformatted Document Text:  experiential learning, and I use individual and group research and presentations in all of my class (See Appendix A3a) ” I would counter the claim with the ‘proof’ the documentation, the evidence of my statement. Statements made without evidence, as a friend of mine likes to say, is a pudding pie without the pudding. So documentation is as important as the portfolio itself. That was another aspect of the journey that helped me formulate who I am and what my aims were. I knew that if I didn’t have some form of evidence to the statements I made I wasn’t being truthful to the committee or to myself. It was also the process that helped me arrange and rearrange some classes I was teaching at the time. What type of evidence can be used? Anywhere from: • Feedback from Peers: that can include classroom observation, syllabus review, external review, team teaching or teaching circles. • Feedback from Students: course evaluations that can be both institutional and personal, letters and emails that are sent to you, student based awards and students registering again in elective courses with the same teacher, and requests for independent study. • Feedback from Others: TAs, parents, internship sponsors. • Other Forms: testing including pre and post teats/exams, products of teaching. If you’re like me, your three ring binder will get full very quickly and you will wonder if there is enough room for everything. Of course I added many other things to my portfolio but the most important part was over. I had formulated my philosophy and then went looking for evidence that I was doing what I said I was doing. Well, chalk one up for the home team! Conclusion: 18

experiential learning, and I use individual and group research and presentations in all of my
class (See Appendix A3a) ” I would counter the claim with the ‘proof’ the documentation, the
evidence of my statement. Statements made without evidence, as a friend of mine likes to say,
is a pudding pie without the pudding. So documentation is as important as the portfolio itself.
That was another aspect of the journey that helped me formulate who I am and what my
aims were. I knew that if I didn’t have some form of evidence to the statements I made I wasn’t
being truthful to the committee or to myself. It was also the process that helped me arrange and
rearrange some classes I was teaching at the time. What type of evidence can be used?
Anywhere from:
Feedback from Peers: that can include classroom observation, syllabus review,
external review, team teaching or teaching circles.
Feedback from Students: course evaluations that can be both institutional and
personal, letters and emails that are sent to you, student based awards and
students registering again in elective courses with the same teacher, and requests
for independent study.
Feedback from Others: TAs, parents, internship sponsors.
Other Forms: testing including pre and post teats/exams, products of teaching.
If you’re like me, your three ring binder will get full very quickly and you will wonder if there
is enough room for everything. Of course I added many other things to my portfolio but the
most important part was over. I had formulated my philosophy and then went looking for
evidence that I was doing what I said I was doing. Well, chalk one up for the home team!
