Reflective Practice for Faculty

Reflective Practice for Faculty

Teaching in higher education is a complex and multi-faceted endeavour. It is highly creative, relational, dynamic and inspiring, and also demanding in a context of changing student expectations and the proliferation of knowledge across all disciplines and professions. Given that learning is completely volitional on the part of your students, high-impact teaching involves inspiring, motivating and facilitating rich and authentic learning experiences. Within all of the complexity of the teaching role, how do you know where you are most effective, and where you can further grow and develop? Reflective practice is the key!

Whether you are new to teaching or are an experienced college faculty member, this manual offers
a roadmap for your own personal journey of discovery and growth, with a wide range of tools and resources to help you in advancing your teaching excellence. The activities and resources in this manual have been drawn from research and scholarship on teaching in higher education, as well as the lived experience of a diverse group of faculty members and other academic leaders, to support you in your learning journey across the many dimensions of your role. Personal stories, case examples, and reflections from faculty colleagues are offered throughout, bringing the material to life and establishing direct linkages with the ‘art and science’ of teaching and learning.
