Educator's Portfolio (EP)

The Educator’s Portfolio (EP) helps faculty make visible their most important contributions in education among five roles: Teaching, Mentoring and Advising, Curriculum Development and Instructional Design, Educational Leadership, and Learner Assessment. Each education role is drafted using a template unique to that role.

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.
