Teaching effectiveness (TE) is one of the primary functions to support higher education teaching and learning practices. TE can be understood by studying the models of instruction that capture and define what it is that effective teachers know and do - a set of behaviors that effective teachers incorporate into their daily professional practices. These involve a deep understanding of subject matter, learning theory and student differences, planning and classroom instructional strategies, knowing individual students, assessment of student understanding and proficiency with learning outcomes. They also include a teacher's ability to reflect on teaching and learning practices, collaborate with colleagues and continue ongoing professional development.
Effective teaching and learning practices need to be measurable through establishment of mechanisms for relevancy of academic, general educational programs and internship practices as well as effectiveness of course design to include integration and application of case studies, research papers, news items, application of innovative teaching practices / pedagogy (including blended-learning teaching practices, engagement with content materials, open-ended problem-solving, critical reflection, team work, new/relevant course materials) as well as assessments. ther, teaching effectiveness needs to enable Faculty to articulate theoretical concepts and discourse knowledge clearly and explicitly through updated texts and relevancy of additional readings (online and physical resources). Teaching effectiveness also delves into academic rigor including reinforcement, intensive academic reading and writing practices (text application, analysis, synthesis, critical reflection and evaluation); appropriate testing instruments (for example, knowledge level taxonomies of learning objectives / higher-order questions) and evaluation practices (including moderation, timely assessment and feedback practices).
