No Prof. left behind: A case for intradepartmental coaching
Academic employment normally involves a combination of three variables: service, research and teaching. The distribution of our full time or FTE across these three variables determines how we are being evaluated. It is often more clear how to improve our performance in the dimensions of service and research but it is somehow more mysterious to determine if we are doing a good job at teaching. In this discussion I pretend to address this question and propose a possible solution.
