The TE Framework and accompanying tools offer an integrated, manageable approach by organizing teaching effectiveness into seven domains—aligned with questions on CSU's new course survey—which focuses on the learning environment (not the instructor).
The Teaching Effectiveness Design Guide includes the Teaching Effectiveness Framework which is comprised of seven essential, interrelated domains of effective teaching and a collection of tools to improve student learning. The domains are grounded in evidence-based teaching practices and the scholarship of teaching and learning. The guide provides administrative leadership with tools and language to measure teaching effectiveness, and allows faculty to choose their own reflective teaching practice journey by identifying and focusing on a strength and an area of growth.
