Educator Portfolio: Introduction

Overview:


The Academic Pediatric Association Educational Scholars Program has developed a template for educators that is suitable to use as a tool to plan and document educational productivity. This EP template was peer reviewed and accepted by MedEdPORTAL in August 2007. Please retain the MedEdPORTAL logo if you reproduce copies of the template.

The template is intended to be used for a developmental EP, not a "high stakes" EP for a promotion review, because the format, length, and content of a formal EP differ from institution to institution. Typically, a promotional EP is considerably shorter than a developmental EP, and includes more summarized information and less self-reflection.

As a developmental EP, the template encourages personal goal setting, careful documentation of one's teaching and evaluation activities, and reflection on one's progress as an educator.

The EP template includes five sections. Most junior faculty will not complete all sections, but can add to them as their careers mature.

I. TEACHING
II. CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT
III. MENTORING/ADVISING
IV. EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP/ADMINISTRATION
V. OTHER INFORMATION
VI. TEMPLATE FOR REPORTING ON EDUCATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP
