The Faculty Teaching Excellent Program (FTEP) is pleased to introduce Making Teaching and Learning Visible (MTLV), a collaborative project that grew out of FTEP's 2016 Summer Assessment Institute: Achieving Course Goals and Gathering Evidence about Student Learning. During the 2016-2017 academic year, a group of CU Boulder faculty agreed to document their teaching practices and produce Course Portfolios. The goal of a course portfolio is to make visible the intellectual inquiry that grounds teaching: design, assessment, reflection, and redesign. In each portfolio listed below, a faculty member identifies a specific course and a question or challenge to investigate. Then, they describe the solutions they devised, how they implemented them, and their observations of student learning. Each portfolio concludes with the faculty's reflections on the results. By making their teaching visible, faculty illustrate the significant role of teaching in their professional life.
Making Teaching and Learning Visible (MTLV) is an opportunity for faculty to demonstrate teaching methods and explore new pedagogical possibilities. In the portfolios published here, you’ll see ways to help students discover meaning in their learning experiences and stimulate their imaginations. We invite your feedback; please email comments to Mary Ann Shea, Director, FTEP at MaryAnn.Shea@Colorado.edu.
