Supporting writing a teaching portfolio by focusing on practice

Publication Name

International Journal for Academic Development


This paper will challenge readers to consider their approach to supporting academics who are writing a teaching portfolio. What comes first? The literature, collecting evidence or something else? In this reflection on practice, I offer an approach that centralises practice as the core focus for starting this process. Grounded in theoretical principles that espouse the inseparability of practice and knowledge, the paper offers simple, practical steps for prioritising a practice-based approach to support writing a teaching portfolio.
