Reviewing Your Teaching.
Day, Kate; Grant, Ruth; Hounsell, Dai
This handbook is intended to help teachers at the college/university level assess the quality of their teaching in ways that can lead to improvement. It opens with an overview of various sources and methods of feedback likely to be most helpful and then examines how each of a range of approaches to teaching can be systematically reviewed. These include: (1) lecturing (reviewing an individual lecture, reviewing a lecture series, the lecturing process, and enhancing the lecture); (2) group-based learning (reviewing a tutorial, reviewing a series of tutorials, developing student skills, and extending expertise); (3) laboratory and fieldwork practicals (setting the agenda and methods of review); (4) project and dissertation supervision (key aspects of supervision, reviewing the student documentation, tracking student progress, ensuring equity of treatment, student feedback on projects and dissertations, and reviewing with colleagues); and (5) assignments and assessments (focus areas and sources of information, assignment setting, carrying out assessment, assignment outcomes, and assessment expertise). A final chapter stresses ongoing assessment of teaching. (Individual chapters contain references.) Contains 38 figures. (DB)
