Teaching Dynamics (TD) is a developmental service provided by the Division of Student Learning (DSL) to assist academic staff with the identification of areas of strength as well as areas for improvement in their teaching. TD can apply in a classroom situation or to the online teaching environment. Both verbal and written feedback from this service are meant to inform subsequent teaching practice. A TD evaluation by an Educational Designer can be used to supplement reports from student surveys as well as to further the development of a Teaching Portfolio. This service is undertaken at the request of the individual academic staff member and all documentation is strictly confidential between the academic and the ED. The protocols created for this service ensure that any discussion relating to the service is confined to the two parties concerned and all observation reports are handed over to the academic staff member.
