Description

myEducation Portfolio: What is it, and why does it matter?

A Scientia Education Academy Lecture presented by Professor Gary Velan

This lecture will explain the rationale for the development of myEducation Portfolio, a platform that enables UNSW staff to demonstrate their educational achievements in relation to the dimensions of effective teaching in higher education. myEducation Portfolio will be integrated into the UNSW academic promotion process from 2020. UNSW academic staff can engage with myEducation Portfolio to commence building (or add to) their education portfolios.

The evidence base for the development of myEducation Portfolio will be discussed, as well as the types of evidence and sources of evidence that staff could utilise to build their own portfolios. Exemplar portfolios will be explored, and staff will be informed how to create their own profiles, as well as how to add evidence to their education portfolios for professional development and academic promotion.

Join us for the Scientia Education Lecture, followed by drinks and nibbles.
