Title

How Faculty Members Rank Attributes Related to their own Teaching and Why This Matters

Conference Tracks

Learning Theories and Pedagogy – Research

Abstract

All faculty are aware of the end of course evaluations provided by students in order to provide valuable feedback to faculty members on their teaching. But the assessment forms themselves make many assumptions about what excellent teaching is, how it is carried out, and what categories ought to be included in the evaluations. The feedback is certainly important, but we might also look to peer evaluations and self-assessments of teaching in order to consider what faculty themselves, with valuable experiences the world of higher education might find important in their own craft of teaching and learning.
