Self-Reflection is an essential element of a system of evaluation of teaching. Reflection can be a powerful tool in allowing faculty to express their own goals and growth as an instructor. This can take many forms from a selected summary and reflection on a single instance of student feedback, thoughts on how an activity or assignment went with notes of what you might like to do the next time you teach a course, or even a day-by-day syllabus document in which you take 1 minute to write thoughts on how the class went.  It can also encompass the reflections you write on annual reviews, the creation of a more formal statement of your teaching philosophy, collection of materials in a teaching portfolio or even a scholarly investigation into your teaching practices
CELT offers consultations and coaching to help individual faculty develop teaching statements or portfolios. CELT also partners with faculty to help them get started with scholarly investigations about their teaching.
