For example, if the candidate is presenting excellence in teaching then teaching products, such as syllabi or course materials produced by the instructor, should be provided to the reviewer. If the candidate has named service as an area of excellence, documents or products detailing the intellectual work related to service and its impact should be sent to the reviewers.
