Evaluation of Teaching

Consider Your Teaching

Decorative: "We do not learn from experience ... we learn from reflecting on experience." John Dewey


"Strategies for Deep and Lasting Learning: Questions for Reflection, Self-Assessment, and Discussion" (post; note - the link is dead but the information below is still valuable) presents an extended series of questions to ask about your students, your teaching, and your course(s) -- questions to "[r]eflect on ... and then discuss them with a colleague, with your department, or with other interested parties."

Decorative: "Be kind to yourself"


"A Self-Care Strategy for Beleaguered Academics" (post) outlines one professor's ongoing strategy to collect a broad range of encouraging "performance documentation" as "a personal survival tool" to help guard against "burn out, get[ing] cynical, or despis[ing] administrators (and their processes)."

1. What Is a "Be Kind Portfolio"?

A "Be Kind Portfolio" is "a way to be kind to [yourself] and remind [yourself] why [you] teach and why [you] serve students" -- a gathering of "the little but tangible things that demonstrate [y]our successes — and those of [y]our students."
