Preparing your dossier panel & workshop

Professional Development Event ~ Preparing Your Tenure & Promotion Dossier

Thursday April 20, 2017, 9.30-11.30am

UBCV Campus Rm 3074 Orchard Commons

UBCO Campus Rm SCI 331



The InLET is very pleased to be offering this workshop to help instructor/educational leadership stream faculty gain insight into the process of developing a thorough and concise dossier for promotion purposes. The speakers will focus on how we navigate the different departmental demands as there is no university standard. The various ‘Table of Contents’ used by the speakers will be addressed as well as the areas that provided the most challenge. The session will end with breakout groups where attendees will have the opportunity to discuss a problematic section of their dossier, while the speakers shadow the discussion.
