Teaching portfolios are becoming especially important for seeking ESL
positions in the US (I don't know about other parts of the
World)--particularly at the  elementary and secondary level
but often in higher education (such as English language institutes and
community colleges) as well.

Here are some book that might be helpful:

The Complete Teaching Portfolio.  ASHE-ERIC Higher Education Report No.

of Education and Human Development.

Rieman, P. (2000).  Teaching Portfolios: Presenting your Professional
Best.  McGraw-Hill.

Seldin, Peter (1997).  The teaching portfolio: A practical guide to
improved performance and promotion/tenure decisions (2nd Ed.).  Bolton,
