Abstract

Pedagogical value of teaching portfolio in the process of primary teachers' training in Finland has been defined. Main stages of work with teaching portfolio and ways of its implementation have been determined. Steps in the process of compiling a personal portfolio have been outlined. The subject of the teaching portfolio in the content of pedagogical curriculum has been defined. The usage of a meriting system in teaching education has been substantiated. Expediency of developing personal portfolio as well as portfolio samples, and its importance during the whole period of pedagogical training have been grounded. It has been defined that the University of Oulu was the first in Finland to employ an official meriting system for teaching in 1994. The system means that qualified teaching will be regarded as an equal merit with credited research and acknowledged in terms on career promotions within the university. The same year, as a part of the system, the University of Oulu also started to use academic teaching portfolios. The primary function of the portfolio is to develop teachers' own professional expertise. The teaching portfolio is also a practical tool for meriting. Portfolios as a part of teachers' professional development in the academic context have been researched. The procedure of portfolio evaluation has been described. It has been defined that teaching portfolios turned out to be the most innovative and promising teaching improvement technique, and proved to be even more effective for the improvement of teaching than the traditional pedagogical training.
