  • How does your department view your development? Letter from colleague in department is needed other than chair, preferably a peer—someone at your rank or above.
  • Typically, portfolios succeed or fail based on the teaching and advising and the research and creative activities components. Unless there is an absence of service or outstanding unresolved issues related to collegiality and academic citizenship, these components will not make or break an application.
  • Present a clear independent teaching/learning program and what have you learned as a teacher? There must be strong evidence of sustained attempts to strengthen your self as a teacher.
  • Chart your SIRS means over time for key variables or compare your SIRS means to those of your department, college and university especially if they exceed them.
