Evaluation of Teaching (Option 1)
March 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This workshop is for graduate students and post docs only
Evaluation in a course is not limited to exploring how well students are learning. Examining the dimensions of your teaching is just as important. Ideally, you do not want to wait until the end of the course to collect data on your teaching and the impact it has on student learning. Midsemester evaluations are a valuable strategy for getting feedback from students, examining the data in the context of student performance at midsemester, and doing your own reflection on your teaching. This analysis provides opportunities to make adjustments that benefit student learning and your teaching proactively in your course.
- How does one do a midsemester evaluation?
- What can you learn from a midsemester evaluation?
- How can you use what you have learned to make appropriate changes in your course at midsemester?
- What will your Teaching Statement say about what you have learned from your students about your teaching?
