Fellowship and Grant Proposals in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences WORKSHOP
September 10 2014 at 1:00 PM
5057 Woodward
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to a Fellowship and Grant Writing in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Workshop on Wednesday, September 10, 2014, 1-3 PM in 5057 Woodward (corner of Woodward and Putnam), 6th floor, Conference Room A. During this session, we will be reviewing and providing feedback on participants’ draft proposals that will be provided to all participants in advance of the session. This is an invaluable way to improve your proposal before it goes to the external agency. Successful grant and fellowship proposals will be circulated to participants prior to the workshop to allow for prepared observations and questions to be discussed during this session; however, the main emphasis of this session will be to workshop for participants’ draft proposals. This workshop is led by Arthur F. Marotti, Distinguished Professor of English Emeritus at Wayne State University. Dr. Marotti is the recipient of research fellowships from The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation (1975-76), The American Council of Learned Societies (1988-89), and The National Endowment for the Humanities (2000 and 2005-6). In addition, he has been co-Principal Investigator on two federal grants (2002-7, 2007-10) from the Department of Education to fund bilateral exchanges of students and faculty with Brazilian universities. This workshop is open to WSU faculty and is FREE. Registration is required by September 5, 2014. Materials to be read for the workshop will be emailed to participants in advance.  After registering, if you would like your grant proposal to be reviewed at this workshop, please send proposals to Sarah James at sjames@wayne.edu by September 5, 2014. If you have questions about this workshop, please contact Sarah James at sjames@wayne.edu.

Teaching Portfolio Policiy

Introduction

Article XXIX.B. of the WSU/AAUP-AFT Agreement requires that each school or college develop a policy for the creation of Teaching Portfolios for faculty. The School of Medicine will use the Teaching Portfolio for promotion and tenure and other personnel decisions. This policy should accurately and adequately reflect the nature of teaching in the School of Medicine.

Each faculty member will develop a Teaching Portfolio that provides a record of teaching activity, evidence of teaching competency, and special teaching achievements. The Teaching Portfolio for the promotion and tenure process should reflect the teaching activity for the period of time since the faculty member’s appointment or last promotion.

The Teaching Portfolio is utilized by the School of Medicine for the purposes of evaluating and counseling the faculty member. Although the Portfolio will be used by the committees evaluating faculty performance for promotion and tenure considerations, its contents are confidential and cannot be disclosed to any outside party without the permission of the faculty member.

Format for Teaching Portfolio

The Teaching Portfolio should contain enough detail to allow evaluation of teaching and yet be concise and selective. It should be no more than 20 pages in length and should include the following (see following information for specific guidelines):

What you do:

1. a narrative statement describing your roles and responsibilities in teaching, including a description of your involvement in curricular development and administration.
2. a table (“grid”) summarizing your teaching activities

How well you do it:

3. a summary of evaluations of your teaching (on the “grid”), followed on the next page by representative evaluative comments.
4. (optional) a discussion of the significance of the evaluation data
5. (optional) additional information.

A description of each of these sections follows:

A narrative statement that helps readers at the Department, School, and University levels understand your teaching. Introduce and explain your teaching responsibilities and roles (the "landscape" of your teaching). Describe the scope of your teaching, including the settings in which you teach and the activities you carry out, such as course direction, delivery of lectures, mentoring, precepting, and advising. If applicable, please describe in narrative form your activities in curriculum development and administration of teaching, such as:

  • Course/curriculum development and instructional design/development
  • Departmental or school educational administration
  • Educational committees or task forces (local, regional, national/international)

A table (“quantitative grid”) summarizing each of your teaching activities in enough detail to determine your teaching load. Please group your activities according to effort, from most to least. Consider the following categories:

  • Lectures
  • Small-group interactive instruction
  • Clinical bedside instruction
  • Clinical procedure instruction
  • Clinical ambulatory instruction
  • Laboratory precepting
  • Online instruction
  • Mentoring/advising (Indicate number of mentees and time commitment for each: medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, others)
  • Essays/Theses/Dissertations directed (List students by name, level, title of project)
  • Visiting Professor/Lecturer (e.g., invited short courses or lectures plus interactions with students/trainees)
  • Other
