Documenting Your Teaching
Documenting your teaching is important not only for the job market and other professional reviews, but also for your own development as an instructor. What are your priorities and methods – and what evidence do you have of your teaching successes? The resources here are drawn from CTL’s Documenting Your Teaching workshops.
