For educators at any stage in their career, reflecting on one’s teaching practices—through peer observation or curating a teaching portfolio—provides an opportunity to better understand the impact of one’s instructional methods on student learning.
These resources support instructors in documenting their teaching, reflecting on their practice, and utilizing Student Experience of Teaching (SET) and mid-term survey data as formative feedback.
Peer Observation of Teaching
Peer observation provides both observers and observed instructors with the opportunity to reflect on teaching and to consider the impact of specific instructional choices on student learning. These resources provide tools and templates for a variety of approaches to peer observation that can generate productive conversations between colleagues.
A representative collection of materials that document one’s teaching effectiveness, a teaching portfolio captures one’s approaches to and reflections on their teaching in relation to student learning, with the goal of communicating one’s identity as an educator.
