Introduction to Teaching Dossiers

Learn about teaching dossiers and how to build your own!  

The UHN Office of Research Trainees invites you to a learning session on Teaching Dossiers. This virtual, interactive workshop is for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers who are interested in pursing roles in academia.

In the session, facilitators from the University of Toronto’s Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation will address the following questions:

  1. What is a teaching dossier and why do I need it?
  2. What makes an effective teaching dossier?
  3. How do I get started? How do I build my dossier?
  4. What other tools and resources are available to support my dossier development?

There will also be time to have your questions answered and to reflect on your own teaching experience during the session.

This session is free and open to everyone. Register here
