Originally prepared for Promotion review in September 2001 but updated where possible since then. Please excuse not-yet-implemented links and/or notify me.
All students whose work is included here have given permission.

This Practitioner's Portfolio consists of seven binders. I welcome dialogue around the different components of the Portfolio to help readers appreciate work in areas or directions unfamilar to them. Preparing a Portfolio also corresponds to my view that formal reviews should attend to process as well as product. That is, for reviewers to be confident in continued effectiveness of a colleague, they should have evidence of the faculty member's on-going process of assessment and development of research, teaching, and responding to institutional challenges, and of cross-fertilization between those three aspects of a scholar's work.
