Teaching is a vital component of many faculty members’ position responsibility statement. According to Section 5.2.3 of the Faculty Handbook, “Most faculty have significant teaching responsibilities, and the quality of their teaching is a major factor in evaluating their accomplishments and performances.”
Effectively documenting your teaching is necessary for formative improvement, and essential in annual performance evaluations, promotion and tenure reviews, and supporting teaching award nominations.
There are several strategies to ensure constructive student feedback as well as encourage students’ response rate.
CELT utilizes Quality Matters (QM), a faculty-centered, peer review process based on best practices to measure online and hybrid courses’ quality.
