Developing Your Educator's Portfolio

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 Educators’ 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 and 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. In addition, participants will benefit from group discussion and consulting expertise regarding promotion package refinement.

The workshop is designed to be practical and allow participants to learn about the ongoing development of their teaching portfolio. This is especially helpful to those who identify as clinician educators.

Following an overview of promotion criteria in general, we will review the components of a sample teaching portfolio, learn ways to enhance a teaching portfolio, and develop tools for gathering information for promotion.

Session Learning Objectives:

  1. Develop a strategy for developing a teaching portfolio
  2. Describe the impact of educational scholarship and teaching evaluations on the promotions process

Facilitated by: Colleen Hummel, Office of Faculty Affairs Administrative Manager
