Senate policy indicates that "no more than 50%" of the evaluation of teaching used for tenure/promotion and raises should come from end-of-term student ratings of instruction. In this Coffee Chat session, we'll discuss how "the other half" is currently accomplished in various departments, and suggest some alternatives for future departmental consideration. (The Provost, Deans, and Chairs have already seen these, and agree that it's best for each department to decide whether and how to have this discussion.) The Provost's goal is to consider ways to move the focus from "judgment" to continuous improvement. Join us as we kick off these conversations!
