Teaching Dossier Academy – June 4 through 8, Windsor, Ontario, Canada
The University of Windsor is pleased to invite college and university professors of all ranks and years of experience to its fourth annual Teaching Dossier Academy, June 4-8, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. The Academy is designed to provide background information, workshops, peer consultation, and extensive expert individual consultation to support the development of participants’ professional teaching portfolios over a period of five days.
Organizers of the Academy will guide post-secondary instructors 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 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. This year, a new stream is available for Educational Developers.
Details and a three-minute video featuring testimonials from past participants can be found on the Centre’s home page.
Academy Registration and Fees
The fee for full-time graduate students from institutions other than the University of Windsor is $169.50 (includes HST), CDN or US funds. The fee for faculty and staff from other institutions is $282.50 (includes HST), CDN or US funds. Enrolment for the Academy is limited to 25 participants.
A few spots are being held for people interested in developing their Educational Developer’s Portfolios/Dossiers. There is a waiting list for the event, but because this is a new stream, organizers are holding a few extra spots.
There has been growing interest in opportunities to begin or refine Educational Developers’ Dossiers. For several years, organizers have offered a five-day Teaching Dossier Academy, and each year a few Educational Developers have attended. This year, for the first time, organizers are starting a new stream for Educational Developers. It is a wonderful opportunity to focus attention on dossiers and receive feedback from a mentor and peers.
