Faculty dedicate a large portion of their careers to teaching and education, and correspondingly they have a body of scholarly work associated with their educational projects or teaching. For those interesting in applying to become advanced members of the Institute, we require evidence of those scholarly works.
Advanced Membership Application Examples
We have provided one or more examples for each of the five educational categories in the advanced membership application. These examples demonstrate the quantity, quality, and dissemination required for Fellow and Master Educator membership.
Fellow and Master Educator applicants are expected to apply in at least two categories. The selection committee is looking for the applicant to match the evidence of quantity, quality, and dissemination contained in the examples for at least one category, for example, Direct Teaching, and to exceed the evidence in at least one other category, for example, Education Administration and Leadership. If you submit multiple worksheets in one category, for example, five different direct teaching activities, at least one activity should match the evidence provided in the examples. Refer to the corresponding examples for either Fellow or Master Educator. Demonstration of excellence in more than two areas will likely produce a stronger application. Applications in one category will be considered only if evidence in that area is exceptional.
While it is impossible to provide examples of the unique strengths of every educator or to represent a faculty’s entire portfolio with one category, we hope that you find these examples useful in preparing your application.
The following examples in each category have been prepared using the same template you should use in your Faculty Membership Application. In your application, unlike the examples, please indicate exact years you have been teaching, and specific dates of awards and other activities that you include.
