The Otago Teaching Profile provides an opportunity for you to reflect on what you are attempting to achieve in your teaching and what you are achieving. It is an evidence-based account of your development, and achievements, as a teacher. For some it also becomes the shared portion of a much more extensive and personal teaching portfolio. Some academic staff members are required to submit their Otago Teaching Profile as part of their confirmation path development or in applications for promotion.
