  • Professional Development Through Self-Reflective Practice

    Taking College Teaching Seriously utilizes a platform called the Notebook to help faculty reflect on their teaching practice, connect with other faculty around the country and improve their teaching in a non-evaluative context. With the Notebook, each professional records classroom lessons, shares documents used in the classroom, reflects on the practice and tags aspects of it based on five themes: Supportive, Varied, Organized and Challenging Classroom Environments and Evaluating Student Work. These tags become a common language for discussing teaching practice, as faculty peers, as well as mentors, access each other’s lessons to offer feedback and support.




  • "I think the continual self-evaluation and reflection allowed us to work together to brainstorm improvements and positive tweaks to be more purposeful in our classrooms as opposed to just randomly reaching in the dark for ideas and techniques in HOPE of success."

    -Claudia Delgado, Hudson County Community College
