Center for Faculty Innovation

Academic Portfolio Institute

Mon, 22 May 2017 8:30 AM - Fri, 26 May 2017 2:00 PM

The 2017 Academic Portfolio Institute will be 22-26 May 2017 at Rose Library.

This year's cohort has filled.

The Academic Portfolio Institute (API) provides faculty opportunities to create a professional, reflective portfolio that integrates faculty accomplishments in teaching, research/scholarship, and service/leadership into a single document. Portfolio Institutes are five-day intensive experiences in which participating faculty are paired with a trained mentor who provides one-on-one support, guidance, and feedback in drafting the portfolio and selecting evidence. The resulting document is typically 15-20 pages plus appendices. This comprehensive portfolio combines thoughtful reflection on faculty performance and effectiveness with hard evidence of accomplishment and development.

Faculty participants will make progress toward the Career Development outcomes:  

  • Appreciating the place and purpose of comprehensive career planning in academic careers,
  • Creating a comprehensive career plan with a meaningful, measurable goals for professional advancement,
  • Identifying and implementing effective strategies for career advancement,
  • Achieving self-defined career milestones,
  • Applying best practices of performance documentation to career advancement, and
  • Developing and fostering productive mentoring and networking relationships.

The portfolio process is based on the widely recognized model developed by Peter Seldin and Beth Miller (2009) in The Academic Portfolio (Jossey-Bass). 

Lead Facilitators:

  • Peter Seldin, Ph.D., Management, Pace University
  • J. Elizabeth (Beth) Miller, Ph.D., Family and Child Studies, Northern Illinois University
