Teaching Dossier Support

Many Ryerson faculty members are required to create a teaching dossier for tenure review, awards and job applications.

The LTO offers two great workshops a year facilitated by Dr. Eric Kam, LTO Director and Dr. Gosha Zywno, LTO Faculty Associate, which are designed to assist you with the creation of your teaching philosophy and teaching dossier.

Creating an Effective Teaching Dossier
Date: Wednesday November 1, 2017 and Wednesday February 14, 2018
Time: 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Location: POD 372

This workshop describes and expands on the different parts of the teaching dossier and assists faculty in presenting their dossier in an effective manner. Faculty will be given some concrete examples of well-written and poorly written teaching dossiers in order to focus on the necessary elements of a successful teaching dossier.
