As you prepare for AiR, creating a portfolio to demonstrate your competencies in the AiR areas (i.e., teaching, scholarship, and service) is important. As you work on developing this integrative resource, you might consider building an ePortfolio. Some of the advantages to ePortfolios over a print/binder version include the following:
- Include images, videos, and links to important sites (e.g., your courses, conferences you have presented at, articles you have published, etc.) to showcase different parts of your portfolio and more clearly demonstrate your competencies
- Provide links to documents on an internet drive (e.g. Google drive, One drive, etc.) so that the portfolio is automatically updated each time you alter these documents on the internet drive.
- Present your AiR areas in visually appealing ways that help to focus AiR reviewers attention to the most important aspects of your work
So, what might an ePortfolio look like and how might you go about setting one up? Dr. Harsha Sharma has graciously agreed to share the ePortfolio that she used for her successful advancement to the rank of full Professor. Click on the image above to be taken to her ePortfolio. If you have questions about the AiR process or creating an AiR portfolio or ePortfolio, please contact either members of the Faculty Development Committee or CREATE!
