XCITE provides faculty professional development offerings focused on assisting faculty in the growth of their pedagogical knowledge and reaching their career goals. We value agility and recognize faculty have diverse backgrounds in levels of seniority and experience with pedagogy. We respect faculty backgrounds and experiences and want to support faculty how and when they need it. We value our partnerships with faculty and what their goals are. XCITE professional development of teaching services starts by meeting faculty where they are at and in partnership creates opportunities to explore and grow.

XCITE will lead a series of workshops on crafting an effective teacher portfolio for faculty and graduate teaching assistants. Your completed Teacher Portfolio will represent your teaching philosophy, values, improvements, and effectiveness. In the workshops, participants will work on creating and developing relevant artifacts and then learn how to curate them into an individualized teacher portfolio. Opportunities for personal consultations with XCITE specialists will be made available. Teacher Portfolios can help faculty see teaching as an ongoing process of inquiry, experimentation, and reflection.
