“My Professional Development Activities in Teaching” Worksheet

“My Professional Development Activities in Teaching” Worksheet

The worksheet at this link is an outline of the major areas involved in effective instruction. It is an easy way to tracking your personal development activities in the area of teaching.

On the first 2 pages you'll find the outline for recording your activities. We suggest that you list seminars attended, books read or other activities, along with the date completed, under the appropriate heading. You may

  • complete a new form annually or
  • track yourself over a period of time to demonstrate the breadth of your activities or to uncover areas for further development.
  • In addition, you may wish to record the “level” of the activity, perhaps using Bloom’s Taxonomy or another popular taxonomy, such as Fink’s.
  • There is also a place to list the sorts of resources you might need to achieve in some areas, such as funding for a conference. This could help you prioritize.

Of course some judgment is involved in selecting a category. You can view learning objectives and examples of topics in the rest of the document for detailed explanations.

We also have resource lists for each topic. Just contact us at or call 270-745-6508 to get a list customized to your needs.
