Tofade T, Abate M. Perceptions of a continuing professional development portfolio model to enhance the scholarship of teaching and learning. J Pharm Pract. 2014;27(2):131-137.
For attendees of the 2011 AACP’s Teacher’s seminar, a CPD portfolio guide to raising a faculty’s scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) was given out prior to the start of the conference. A live workshop was conducted, outlining the basics of the portfolio process, providing the registrants an opportunity to develop their own plan for advancement, and peer and facilitator feedback on ways to implement their plan. Following completion of this workshop, a hard copy survey was distributed to assess the participants’ thoughts on the usefulness of the CPD model for heightening their teaching and learning scholarship. 86.8% of the respondents stated the portfolio program would be useful for their personal development in teaching/learning and 77.4% said it would increase SoTL efforts by faculty.
