Building Your Teaching Case for Tenure

One important aspect of your tenure case, at almost every institution, is your teaching. To build your teaching case for tenure, you'll need to do two things: find out what the teaching expectations are for faculty to earn tenure at your institution, and document your teaching, to illustrate that it meets those expectations. You may well wonder how to document the quality of your teaching; after all, you do not "publish" a record of your best teaching. Nonetheless, there are tried-and-true methods for documenting teaching excellence (and it's never too soon to start!). The resources below will introduce you to those methods.
