Abstract

Good university teachers are reflective professionals who evaluate their own practice in order to improve their teaching. CityU has a clear policy stressing the need for staff to evaluate their teaching effectiveness to help inform decisions concerning contract renewal, promotion, substantiation and teaching excellence awards. This session will help participants identify the characteristics and expectations of professional teachers and will take participants through the processes and requirements for reflecting on their teaching and constructing their teaching portfolios.
