Teaching Portfolio


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The aim of this project is to support the participants in reflecting on own teaching practice and experiences and thereby develop their teaching competences, including educational planning and design. The teaching portfolio is a starting point for the participants to continuously reflect on and develop their teaching competences and will be updated by the end of the MPBL programme.

Learning objectives


  • Explain the purpose and contents of a typical teaching portfolio


  • Analyse and discuss the use of active and social learning theories with the aim of developing own teaching practice
  • Reflect on the relationship between learning theories and own teaching values and practice
  • Reflect on the alignment of own teaching values, teaching practice and specific choice of pedagogical and educational principles and methods


  • Analyse own teaching experiences based on knowledge of concepts, theories and methods presented in the course and argue for generalization of the experiences.
  • Communicate the results of the above in a Teaching Portfolio, written in scientific language

Type of instruction

In the project the general knowledge from the courses in semester 1 is linked to experiences from own teaching practice. Participants have to prepare a personal Teaching Portfolio which should contain a self-critical reflection on and evaluation of own teaching values and teaching practice, seen in the light of the concepts, theories and methods presented in the courses. The Teaching Portfolio should be presented and communicated using scientific language.

The teaching format is an individual project, including self-study, online study group work, project facilitation and thematic online sessions. In this semester, the thematic sessions focus on how to fulfill the intended learning outcomes for the project and on the concept of a teaching portfolio.
