External Review of Teaching
The goal of this initiative is to address 2 major obstacles to recognizing and rewarding teaching in our colleges:
- The lack of defined and ready-to-use tools to assess teaching, teaching-related professional activities, and the scholarship of teaching.
- The lack of a respected and rigorous external review process.
The goal of this initiative is to design and implement a faculty development program for new-to-teaching faculty.
Local Peer Observation
The primary goal of this initiative is to enhance teaching. To address this, we initially developed two outputs:
- A straightforward instrument designed to facilitate the peer observation process
- A set of guiding principles, or best practices, to facilitate implementation of local peer observation
