Workshop: Developing the Educator’s Portfolio

September 23, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Preparing the documents needed for promotion takes time and attention to detail. One of the critical items needed in the presentation of one’s materials is the Educator’s Portfolio. Despite the importance of this document, many faculty still find it difficult to pull together a successful package.

This workshop is designed for late-stage junior faculty and early mid-career faculty who are interested in the promotional trajectory from the assistant to associate to the full professor designation. Those who participate will enjoy the opportunity to learn some of the best approaches to putting together a teaching portfolio and discuss the promotion process. The workshop is designed to be practical and allow participants to learn about the ongoing development of their own teaching portfolio. This is especially helpful to those who identify as clinician educators.

Following an overview of promotion criteria, there will be several interactive small groups that review a sample teaching portfolio, opportunities to enhance and create a portfolio and information on gathering other evidence for promotion.
