The teaching portfolio is a personal record drawn up and compiled by your self. The portfolio have to provide documented evidence of teaching from a variety of sources—not just student ratings—and provide context for that evidence. In the portfolio, you should give a fair and accurate presentation of yourself. Don’t try to present yourself as the absolutely perfect lecturer / teacher. Be selective in which materials you choose to include, though be sure to represent a cross-section of your teaching and not just one aspect of it.
