Reflecting on Teaching

Every now and again it is good to take a step back and take stock of how your courses are going. What is working that you can build upon and what isn’t working as you intended? Information from your assessments is useful to see what students are mastering and what needs extra attention. In addition, instructors may wish to survey students during the semester. Combined with information from your assessments, mid-semester feedback can be a useful way to get information that you can use to make adjustments as you go. Couple these with multiple means of teaching assessment such as peer evaluation, reflection, and teaching portfolios for a wholistic picture of your continuous improvement as an instructor.
