One of the things that all new faculty struggle with are yearly reports. Then I was nominated for FACET and got in! Since then I have looked at a number of FACET application dossiers. I have found that my own yearly reports and promotion materials have become both enriched and clearer, and a lot less painful. In essence my dossier for full professor looked like a FACET application, only a lot bigger. I understood what a teaching philosophy was, how to develop measurable outcomes, the difference between direct and indirect evidence of student learning. One great compliment I received from the Vice Chancellor at the time was that he had never seen a dossier with so much actual evidence. I may have achieved promotion without the FACET experience, but I am convinced it was a major factor in both my development as a teacher and the strength of my application.
