WHAT IS A PROFESSIONAL PORTFOLIO?
The TeachOn! portfolio is a record of your growth, represented through evidence and reflections. The portfolio provides a professional record to guide future professional development and may serve as supportive evidence in future employment interviews. It provides introspection opportunities for you, as well as a conversation tool between your mentor and yourself. The portfolio is designed and evaluated by each the coach and principals according to its own requirements using the following guidelines. The portfolio should:
be based upon the Utah Effective Teaching Standards
include evidence of effective teaching
include notations and reflections explaining the artifacts
be a vehicle for collaboration with the mentor
provide evidence of content knowledge and pedagogy
You can "house" and organize your Portfolio artifacts in any way you chose.
Some ideas include:
Portfolio as Google Slides
Google Drive Folders or Desktop File Storage (back up in at least 2 different places if you choose Desktop File Storage)
Create a "Portfolio" classroom in Google Classroom or Canvas
Create a "Portfolio" website
