The Academy of Educators (AOE) kicked off their 2018 faculty development workshop series featuring Dr. Joanne M. Jordan, MD, Vice Dean of Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development, who discussed getting promoted on the Educational Scholarship Track. The workshop helped outline differences between fixed term teaching and educational scholarship tenure tracks, illuminated the type of published research that would qualify as educational scholarship, and featured teaching portfolio components with examples. The lecture capture and slides from the workshop can be found here. One attendee shared:

“Being brand new faculty, this was helpful to jump start my thinking about what I need to do to start moving toward promotion requirements.”

 

The AOE is looking forward to continuing the conversation at the organization’s annual Evening of Scholarship on Thursday, May 31, 2018 featuring a keynote address from Grace Huang, MD, Editor-In-Chief of MedEdPORTAL. We also encourage AOE members to bring ongoing questions and/or suggestions on the topic to monthly Peer-to-Peer Walk In Clinics. Please check the programming calendar for additional details.
