Each year, the Office of Academic Affairs and the Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning co-sponsor a two-day Academic Portfolio Retreat, designed to assist faculty in the preparation of tenure or promotion dossiers.
The next Portfolio Retreat will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, April 11, and 8 a.m. 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 12. All participants must commit to full participation in both days of the retreat. Seating is limited to 25. There is a $100 registration fee (typically covered by academic departments), which is applied to the cost of materials and meals. All other costs are covered by the Office of Faculty Affairs.
The retreat will be facilitated by Marilyn Miller, Ph.D., formerly the director of the University of Missouri Program for Excellence in Teaching and an educational consultant at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. During the retreat, participants will write about, reflect on and organize evidence of their teaching, research and service, in preparation for tenure or promotion review. Participants leave with a preliminary draft of their academic portfolio.
Both tenure-track and non-tenure track faculty are eligible to participate. Interested faculty may self-nominate or be nominated by their chairs. Nomination forms and other information may be found at the Office of Faculty Affairs website
. Completed nomination forms must be received no later than Friday, March 7, 2014.
