A portfolio is a collection of evidence of quality of one's work (like an artist's portfolio or an investment portfolio). The Educator Portfolio (EP) is a collection of evidence of quality of one's work as an educator. It is more than a CV, as it generally includes more detailed descriptions of the work, and may also include samples of the work, evidence of quality and evidence of dissemination among the community of educators (e.g. presentations or publications related to the work). An EP also includes the educator's teaching philosophy, and/or report on the journey of preparation to be a good educator and reflections on one's work. All areas of education may be represented, including direct teaching, mentoring, advising, and/or assessment, enduring educational material; and educational leadership. An EP may be used for promotion/tenure review, for application to a teaching academy or other award.
