The PolyU SFQ

At PolyU, all full-time and part-time staff having a major teaching responsibility for any subjects/classes of any PolyU award-bearing programmes at the sub-degree, undergraduate, and postgraduate levels are required to collect feedback from students on their teaching on a regular basis for both developmental and judgmental purposes. The results will be used as one of the sources of evidence in judging a staff member’s teaching performance in the annual staff appraisal and in important personnel decisions regarding (re)appointments, tenure, and promotion.

The SFQ system

Teaching Portfolio

Did you know that for academic reviews or staff appraisal that you may need to submit a teaching portfolio?

A teaching portfolio is a document compiled by an academic staff member to represent or make claims about his/her teaching practice or accomplishments. It is an opportunity to document and demonstrate the effectiveness of your teaching by presenting a wide range of evidence from a variety of sources.

While the format of the teaching portfolio isn’t stipulated, the University provides an e-portfolio platform
– the eTeaching Portfolio (eTP) system
– for teachers to use if they want.

The PolyU eTP system PolyU red_03

The PolyU eTeaching Portfolio (eTP) system is an online platform for teaching staff members to compile their teaching achievements into a portfolio. It facilitates the documentation of teaching evidence in a systematic and an efficient way for developmental and judgmental purposes. It is designed to support the preparation of supporting documents in accordance with the documentation requirements for academic reviews set out in the Handbook on Teaching Evaluation.

You will find the system at Log in using your NetID and password. A user guide to using the system can be found here.

Peer Review

Peer review of teaching is part of the formal teaching evaluation process at PolyU. It is confined to the review of teaching in a classroom setting, and so is conducted in the form of classroom observation. You can find out more about peer review at PolyU, including who needs one and when, in the Handbook on Teaching Evaluation.
