The aim of the Commitment to Change project is to assist Teaching Scholars participants in taking steps toward improving their educational practice and/or support them in contributing to institutional efforts to improve educational practice.
Therefore, Teaching Scholars participants will participate in a session that describes the purpose and contents of an educator portfolio, in addition to starting or updating their portfolio in UA Vitae. Upon completing the program, participants will have:
Documented activities related to their educational study;
Identified opportunities for (peer) evaluation and feedback;
Self-assessed teaching practices and identified steps toward improvement.
Participants will meet with the Director during the academic year to discuss portfolio development.
