They also highlight multiple external structural and financial resources and emphasize the importance of creating a community of educators to share ideas, support innovative projects, and celebrate educational achievements. Lastly, they encourage the documentation of successful metrics such as publications, presentations, career advancement, and the increased visibility for educational study.
