ACADEMY MEMBER UPDATE REPORTS:
Academy members are expected to remain active and continue their professional development in teaching and education. The Update Report is an optional activity. Academy members are encouraged to use this opportunity to obtain periodic peer review and feedback. Upon receipt, reports are assigned to three peer reviewers who carefully review and provide specific feedback to faciltiate continuing professional development in teaching and education and strengthen evidence of excellence and scholarly achievements in teaching and education. Update reports are also intended to support Academy members in maintaining and current and comprehensive educator portfolio that is necessary for renewing membership and applying for a different category (e.g., Master Teacher or Teaching Scholar).
Academy members may submit their annual reports via email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each update report should include only information, activities, and achievements directly related to teaching and education, including participation and contributions to the Academy for the prior academic year (July 1 – June 30). The required template and corresponding information and directions are available below. Of course, if you have questions or would like assistance, please email email@example.com or call 504-568-2140.
