      Compiling a portfolio is essential not only for job-seeking, but also when preparing for promotion, building a rapport with potential collaborators, and capturing work for prosperity. If you are teaching faculty innovative ways to design quality online course content, have you updated your portfolio with your current skills and projects?

      Publishing this content for your employer or future faculty can act as a snapshot of your current resumé. Have you become an expert in Zoom or used your learning management system at a deeper level during the move to remote instruction? Make sure to add these skills to your portfolio! Do you network with fellow educators and peers on Linkedin? Link or create your portfolio directly in your Linkedin profile.
