After 30 years of teaching experience, I wrote this portfolio primarily to take stock, to reconsider what I had learned, and to describe my approach to teaching. In writing the first version in the late 1990s, I realized that my teaching portfolio reflected my openness to students, and I began writing a portfolio which my future students might profitably read. This 2005 version updates my understanding of my teaching and students' learning; it expands the explanation of how my teaching and research interrelate; and it incorporates my newest course, Victor Hugo: Poète, dramaturge, romancier, critique social, artiste (FREN 3655). I hope it may lead to more conversations with colleagues and students about teaching and learning.
