Spring 2016 Portfolio Workshop

The Drexel Center for Academic Excellence (DCAE) will sponsor a workshop on the creation of faculty portfolios between April 18 and May 13, 2016. This workshop will allow participants to work on Academic Portfolios, which can be tailored to meet individual needs. Academic Portfolios are particularly useful for both tenure-track/tenured faculty members and teaching faculty as they provide an opportunity for faculty to highlight key components of teaching, research, scholarship and service in a cohesive manner. Additionally, academic portfolios provide an opportunity for faculty to reflect on past accomplishments with an eye towards future professional goals. This is our bi-annual workshop, and the mentees will be paired with experienced Drexel faculty from various colleges who will serve as mentors.

Although the workshop has a span of four weeks, most of the timing is flexible and involves the arrangement of individual meetings with a mentor at a mutually convenient time. Group meetings will be held on April 4 (preparation meeting), April 18 and May 13, 2016.

The application process is now closed. Please contact us at or 215-895-4973 with questions.

On-Demand Faculty Development Opportunities

To continue to meet the needs of all faculty and administrators, the DCAE has purchased a one-year institutional subscription to Magna Mentor Commons, which is a continuously growing collection of professional development videos, all 20 minutes in length, focused on  different learning and development topics, including: Blended Learning, Classroom Management, Course Design, Grading and Feedback, Flipped Courses, Online Course Management, Student Engagement and many more. The videos will support an on-demand approach to faculty development and allow you to select topics or ideas that you find to be most important for your own professional development. Supplemental PowerPoint slides, review questions and other materials will also be available for faculty to use as they see fit. As this opportunity is only available to Drexel faculty or staff member, full-time or part-time, the instructions for creating an account cannot be posted to this website.  For a copy of the instructions, please contact us at
