This session will follow the Candidate and Departmental Promotion Committee Information sessions starting at 1:30 p.m. each day. The content of the two workshops (Wednesday and Thursday, March 29 & 30) are identical.
Many UWL instructors find drafting the teaching section of the promotion narrative and identifying evidence of teaching effectiveness and development baffling. We can help. In this working session, we will first examine the various sections of the teaching narrative, identifying types of evidence that might be useful. For those who already have a narrative drafted, we will guide participants in a peer review that models the promotion committee process of review by colleagues in various colleges. Past participants in these workshops have found this process very helpful. The rest of the session can be used to draft a narrative, develop evidence, or bounce ideas off colleagues.
Participants should bring a laptop, and a hard copy of the teaching section of their promotion narrative if they have one.
