Educators in the health professions are busy people. We teach, assess learners, engage in educational leadership and administration, develop and assess curricula, advise and mentor students and colleagues, and conduct research. This IAMSE webinar will introduce tips and tools to help you build an outstanding educational portfolio that highlights the impact of your scholarly activities. We will explore how the IAMSE Educator Toolkit helps you to document your work in a format that is clear and easily interpreted by department chairs, promotion committee members, and other institutional leaders involved in appointment, promotion, and tenure decisions.
