Educators wear many different hats including (1) serving on committees; (2) directing courses/clerkships/rotations; and (3) curriculum development to mention just a few. Teaching is just one of the multiple roles educators fulfill. MCW chooses to use the Educator's Portfolio (EP) because it captures a breath of roles based on review of literature, survey, and personal experience.
The EP provides evidence of quality rather than just highlighting samples of an educator's work (e.g., cases, videos, book chapters).
