Reflect on current teaching

Reflecting on your current teaching is a good place to start when you are thinking about developing your teaching, working on a teaching portfolio, or preparing for promotion and tenure. These approaches include different self-assessment techniques/activities, exploring feedback from students obtained in a variety of ways, and considering feedback from peers offered through various events and consultations.

This section offers a choice of various programs, services and resources to help you gather feedback and begin making decisions about moving forward based on your reflections.
