“Ladies and Gentlemen, Children of All Ages,”

is what comes to mind to introduce my portfolio page.  It’s the iconic intro given by a ringleader* to announce the start of a show.  I use this page, and the portfolio as a whole, to demonstrate to my students the way I’ve used this tool to promote myself and my work, expecting they might learn and improve their portfolios in turn. Quite a lot to do simultaneously, hence the association with introducing a “show.”

Without further delay……

*A ringleader introduces the various acts in a circus show and guides the audience through the experience, directing their attention to the various areas of the circus arena and helping to link the acts together while equipment is brought into and removed from the circus ring.

The Faculty Portfolio site is set up to loosely follow the Professional Activity Report and Self Evaluation (PAR-SE) format, but you may use it in any way that suits you. Here are a few ideas:

  • Use the Blog section to document your teaching, scholarly, and professional growth to help you formulate your year-end Self Evaluation.
  • Organize the Teaching Portfolio section as an online teaching portfolio and listing of the courses taught.
  • Populate the Institutional Service section each semester with your roles and responsibilities in the Department, College, and University communities.
