The first four posts in this series examined how hiring committees read and evaluate CVs, cover letters, research statements, and teaching statements. In today’s post, I’d like to ask search committee members to answer some or all of the following questions about teaching portfolios:
Which parts of a teaching portfolio are you the most interested in?
What do you think belongs in a good teaching portfolio?
What do you think does not belong?
How much weight do you assign to student evaluations?
Should candidates provide student comments? If so, is it better to provide curated or non-curated/complete comments?
Anything else you think candidates should know about how you read and evaluate teaching portfolios?
What type of institution do you work at? (R1? R2? Highly-selective SLAC? Non-highly selective SLAC? Community College?)
Really curious to hear your answers!
