Assessing Your Teaching

Tools for Assessing Your Own Teaching: An Overview

Student evaluations are just a starting place when it comes to assessing your teaching. In this session we’ll introduce a number of tools you can use to assess your own teaching, providing a new perspective for your own use and use by departmental committees charged with evaluating your teaching.

Tools for Peer Assessment of Teaching: An Overview

Student and self evaluations can provide two important perspectives on your teaching. A third perspective can come from your peers. In this session we’ll introduce a number of tools you can use as part of a peer observation process, providing a new perspective for your own use and use by departmental committees charged with evaluating your teaching.

Seen as one of several perspectives on our teaching, student evaluations may actually provide some valuable information. The trick is to sort out the valuable bits from the rest. In this session we’ll look at some data from student evaluations and consider how it might be interpreted and used to inform future instruction.
