Chairs: Use the resources below to help you coach and guide your faculty's teaching development.
These materials are intended for use year-round, but can be most useful during the period of Faculty Annual Evaluation each year.
This infographic document includes steps you can take to understand the many dimensions of teaching development, how to promote it regularly with your faculty, how to coach individual faculty, and ways the CTE can support you.
This letter-style document can be downloaded/printed and used with individual faculty members (during FAEs may be ideal). It includes a menu of ways faculty can continue to develop their teaching skills and abilities. You can check off those that seem to be most relevant to an individual faculty member, depending on their needs or interests.
Using this tool, it is important to provide several suggestions, encouraging your faculty member to take advantage of one or more, but mandating none. When these opportunities are required, the faculty member is more likely to be resistant, rather than receptive, to new ideas.
Remember that the CTE is here to help you. If you aren't sure what workshops or other learning opportunities are coming up or are most relevant to a faculty member's needs, just reach out and we will help you!
- Come back for updates. We hope this page will be a living document, with the main pdf (Creating a Culture) receiving updates per feedback, as well as other documents that it becomes evident will be helpful in this toolkit!
