I seek to be continual questioning and evaluating my teaching. Here are some ways that I have evaluated my effectiveness:
- I constantly use my interactions with students in class and office hours to assess whether they are connecting the material in the ways I desire.
- In the same way, carefully crafted exams can help me assess myself as an instructor.
- Student evaluations both at the end of the semester and in the middle of the semester are a good source of direct feedback.
