Educator's Portfolio (EP)

The Educator's Portfolio (EP) documents educational accomplishment for academic promotion, and is the core of the membership application for the Academy.

In 2013, the Action Group on Educator's Portfolio, Promotion and Advancement was formed to improve the Academy's EP. The EP is comprised of the Executive Summary and detailed Educational Role descriptions.

About the Educator's Portfolio

Traditionally there has been little formal assessment of the educational activities of a candidate for promotion beyond "counting" hours of teaching or letters of recommendation. The standard packet typically provides very little evidence of the content or quality of a teacher's or educator's work. To acknowledge faculty members' contributions to teaching programs, some medical schools have begun to use a "portfolio" to organize and document educational activities - a concept borrowed from artists and architects who have long collected samples of their best work for others to evaluate.
