Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

As you know we are launching a new Learning ePortfolio Initiative this year. As part of that initiative, we hope to also provide training and support to those who may be interested in a Professional ePortfolio of their own. A major component of such a portfolio at an institution like ours would of course be a statement of your teaching philosophy. If you've been giving any thought to that lately, I would encourage you to consider using the

Teaching Perspectives Inventory

which is "a short questionnaire to help you summarize your views and perceptions about teaching." If you've not seen it before I think you'll find that it provides interesting, new perspectives on your attitudes about teaching. If you do give it a try, let me know what you learn.

For now, have a productive week.

Jon Clauss
