Summer Institute: Best Practices for Evaluating Teaching
The quality of instruction has a profound impact on student learning. But is your department or school accurately measuring teaching effectiveness? How do student ratings of instruction impact the retention of minority faculty in your department?
In this workshop—designed for department chairs, school directors and DFSC members— you will examine recent research about the biases in student evaluations, how they affect retention of minority faculty, and how to provide alternative methods to assess teaching effectiveness. Work on a case study, discuss alternative methods for the evaluation of teaching, and leave with resources about alternative teaching evaluation methods and planning. For chairs, directors, or faculty only. No stipend is available for this event. Registration is required.
