Self-Assessing Your Teaching Approach

Below are surveys for faculty to self-assess and learn more about their beliefs and practices about teaching.

  1. Approaches to Teaching Inventory (pdf). Here is an article about the survey instrument with more information: Development and Use of the Approaches to Teaching Inventory.
  2. Teaching Practices Inventory. For more information, see the article The Teaching Practices Inventory: A New Tool for Characterizing College and University Teaching in Mathematics and Science. (pdf)

Hopefully, completing one or both of these self-assessments will help faculty reflect on and evaluate their philosophy of teaching.  Teaching and learning beliefs have a significant impact on teaching practices and how students perform in a course.

Other teaching self-assessments include the Teaching Styles Inventory and Teaching Perspectives Inventory.
