In addition to the resources and references provided for each standard, the following resources are intended to help provide additional support to you as you think individually or as a department about how to document and frame your teaching for evaluation.

This resource provides a list of pedagogical competencies similar to those outlined on this website. For each competency they provide insight on how to achieve the competency, a rubric for evaluation and references. The competencies include curriculum/curricular alignment, pedagogical content knowledge, student motivation, inclusive pedagogy, classroom climate, instructional strategies and feedback and assessment.

This website provides excellent definitions and explanations of teaching excellence, additional forms to consider for reflection and peer review opportunities, and a robust list of models and references on this topic.
