Holmes, Trevor and Julie Timmerman, of the University of Waterloo, led an EDC pre-conference workshop in 2012 on ED portfolios; see their materials at http://eddossierproject.wikispaces.com/
The University of Windsor holds an annual Teaching Dossier Academy. In June, 2012, they introduced a stream for educational developers dossiers/portfolios. Watch for upcoming announcements to the EDC listserv about the next Academy, June 2-6, 2013.
