**Portfolio - Please note that these are the required components of a teaching portfolio participants may submit as part of the MUSC Apple Tree sponsored New Faculty Teaching Series. These components may not be required, or there may be additional components to consider, when compiling a teaching portfolio for other purposes, such as for promotion within one's academic unit or for membership to other teaching academies or teaching-related organizations. When compiling a teaching portfolio for other purposes, participants should be sure to clarify what components may be required for those purposes.
