Status: In

A course portfolio captures and makes visible the careful, difficult, and intentional scholarly work of planning and teaching a course and is an invaluable tool for documenting and reflecting on the quantity and quality of student learning. Illustrated through examples of course portfolios created through a four-year project on peer review of teaching, this book demonstrates that well-designed peer review can be integrated into the daily professional lives of faculty, improve faculty teaching by providing a guiding context for formative assessment and collaboration, and make the learning that comes from effective teaching visible and accessible for review within institutional reward systems
