When evaluating faculty, student feedback should absolutely be considered—but it shouldn’t be the sole component of measurement.
In order to facilitate balanced faculty evaluation, systems of evaluation should integrate multiple sources of evidence, such as classroom observation, self-evaluation, peer feedback, review of curriculum materials, and much more. This in turn helps foster a holistic view of faculty effectiveness and identify areas for improvement.
Developing an Effective Faculty Evaluation System, a Magna Online Seminar, presented by Ken Ryalls, PhD, president of The IDEA Center. You’ll learn how to create a transparent evaluation process that enables fair, balanced, and important decisions about faculty job performance. This will ultimately have a positive effect on teaching, learning, and the institution as a whole.
By implementing the strategies set forth in this seminar, you’ll be able to refine and develop a balanced evaluation process, and build an evaluation system that positively impacts teaching performance, improves learning outcomes and retention, builds faculty morale, fosters communication, and creates a more successful institution.
Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:
- Further explore the concepts behind developing a balanced faculty evaluation process to devise and revise the process on your campus
- Identify weaknesses in your institutions faculty evaluation process and leverage resources (shared in this seminar) to strengthen the process
- Components of a balanced faculty evaluation
- Student feedback
