How do you know if you are an effective teacher? The Making Learning Visible Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Course Inquiry Project offers faculty the opportunity to produce evidence of teaching effectiveness that goes beyond IDEA survey results. Findings can be used as evidence of scholarly teaching in promotion and tenure reviews. Each spring, CAFE seeks applications for the program for the next academic year.
Scholarly Inquiry Portfolios
Through the above program, UAA faculty have created teaching portfolios that showcase their classroom teaching and learning innovations and demonstrate scholarly inquiry into student learning. We share their results here in order to help all teachers improve their pedagogical expertise. These portfolios describe the context for the inquiry, the focus of the inquiry, the course design and implementation, findings and reflections on the inquiry. The portfolios, which cover a wide range of disciplines, are grouped below by course, discipline, and theme.
