The University of Windsor is pleased to invite college and university professors of all ranks and years of experience to its Teaching Dossier Academy. The Academy is designed to provide background information, workshops, peer consultation, and extensive expert individual consultation to support the development of participant’s professional teaching portfolios over a period of five days.
Organisers of the Academy will guide higher education teachers through the process of gathering materials and selecting items to include in their dossiers, as well as articulating teaching methods and philosophies.
The Academy will accommodate doctoral students as they articulate their teaching identities, early-career faculty seeking to establish their teaching profiles, tenure-track teachers required to prepare or re-write their dossiers in for formal evaluation procedures, instructors preparing materials for teaching awards, and teachers at all career stages who wish to enhance their pedagogical practice through reflection and peer dialogue.
I invite you to participate in a stimulating week of professional growth, one which promises to help you to describe, in one succinct and cogent narrative, your aims, activities, and accomplishments as a college or university instructor. If you have any questions or concerns, please write me directly at email@example.com.
Alan Wright, PhD
Vice-Provost, Teaching and Learning
Note: enrolment for the Academy is limited to 25 participants. In order to ensure a balance of University of Windsor teaching professors as well as faculty from beyond the U of W and U of W graduate students for the 25 positions available, we are holding some of the applications for a period of time before sending out absolute confirmations.
Please hold the dates of the Academy and we will confirm your place as soon as possible.
