2017 Academic Portfolio Retreat

Each year, the Office of Academic Affairs and the Reinert Center co-sponsor a two-day Academic Portfolio Retreat, designed to assist faculty in the preparation of third-year review, tenure, or promotion dossiers.

During the retreat, participants will write about, reflect on, and organize evidence of their teaching, research, and service, in preparation for third-year, tenure, or promotion review. The retreat also provides faculty with an opportunity to come together across disciplines, as a teaching and research community, for conversation and mentoring. Participants will begin working on a preliminary draft of their academic portfolio.

Teaching Essentials (CUTS) 

Each workshop in this series presents a fundamental teaching strategy or technique that could be in any teacher's toolbox. After a brief introduction about the why's and how's of the teaching strategy, participants will draft a lesson plan, assignment, or project that will put the tool to work immediately.

NB: This series is especially beneficial for those who are new to teaching or who want to refresh their teaching essentials.
