Teaching Practices Inventory Helps You Examine Your Teaching
Recently I received an e-mail from the Faculty Focus newsletter (great free resource, by the way) with a link to the Teaching Practices Inventory (click to open), which can help you document, examine and perhaps even revise your commonly used teaching practices. It lists various teaching practices and tools that can help you review and spot gaps in your class materials (especially your BlackBoard shells). It only took me about 10-15 minutes to complete it. There’s a scoring rubric you can use to examine your data (remove the dummy data and insert your own).
These tools could lead to some interesting Instructional team — or Department-wide — discussions!
