Course Portfolio Working Group

Request for Proposals

All university faculty members are invited to participate during the 2001-2002 academic year in a course portfolio working group (CPWG).  Since 1997, more than 45 Xavier faculty members have developed course portfolios with grant support from the Center for the Advancement of Teaching.  A $500 stipend per semester is available to CPWG participants.

A course portfolio is a coherent set of materials related to a particular course.  It is not simply a collection of teaching materials, but a scholarly project reflecting the choices an instructor makes in designing, implementing, and evaluating a course.  As noted by one faculty member, "The purpose of the course portfolio is to provide a vehicle for inquiry and reflection into the teaching and learning process."  The portfolio may be Web-based.

Dr. David Lanoue, Professor of English and a member of the first course portfolio working group, will coordinate the efforts of the CPWG during the 2001-2002 academic year.

If you are interested in participating in this project, please submit a letter of interest to the Center by Friday, September 7, 2001.  Please send a copy of this letter to your department chair.  You may drop the letter off at the Center (Library Room 534) or send it via campus mail (P.O. Box 73A) or e-mail at

Only the first 5 faculty members who submit letters of interest will be funded -- we encourage you to submit your letter as soon as possible!

Funded faculty must submit progress and final reports, portions of which will be posted on the CPWG section of the Center's website.  If you have questions, contact the Center at or Todd Stanislav at ext. 7512 or via e-mail.
