Summary This paper discusses the role of the portfolio in relation to teaching in the higher education sector. As well as evidencing experience and achievements it is argued that the portfolio can be an important tool to support reflection and increased understanding. Underpinned by relevant scholarly literature, the paper draws on the practice of using portfolios as part of the Induction Programme for new staff at Deakin University since 2001 and for promotion since 2002 as well as a trial of electronic portfolios. Commencing with indicators of the level of interest in portfolios, the author characterises teaching portfolios and explains why they are used from both an individual and institutional point of view. The theoretical basis for portfolios and the experience elsewhere are set alongside the practice at Deakin as the author explores some of the challenges for those who prepare and assess portfolios.
