Proposal Title

Assessing and Comparing Both Student and Faculty Perceptions of Teaching and Learning in First-Year Seminars

Proposal Abstract

Ten sections of a First-Year Seminar were quantitatively surveyed to determine the student's perception of their faculty's teaching style, and how they felt the instructors felt about them and their learning. A mirror was administered to the ten faculty to compare student and faculty perceptions of each other and the learning/teaching process. Results found that students felt the Seminar professor cared more about them that other professors. The results will be presented and more generalizable assumptions about student/faculty will be discussed.
