Welcome-About me

Sophie Bourgeon

Hello, Hallo, Bonjour!


My name is Sophie Bourgeon and I have been working as an associate professor in Arctic marine ecotoxicology at the Arctic University of Norway (department of Arctic and Marine Biology) since September 2015.




Welcome to my teaching portfolio, which will fill you in about my teaching activities and scopes. When I am not teaching, I focus on my research activities and here is where you can learn more about what keeps me busy half of my time.

This teaching portfolio represents the final assessment of my teacher-training course organized by the Arctic University of Norway (2017-2018). It is divided into four main chapters:

The first chapter retraces my teaching background by outlining my teaching experience, my teaching repertoire as well as my assessment methods.

In the second part, I state my teaching philosophy that brushes upon the various challenges of implementing relevant teaching practices.

The third part documents my development project, which aimed towards implementing true learning based assessments at the bachelor level.

The last part outlines the lessons learned through peer observation.

The concluding remarks summarize the essence of this portfolio.

I wish you a pleasant journey through this portfolio!

“To teach is to learn twice.”  Joseph Joubert (1754-1824)
