Student evaluations: What they can tell you and what they can’t
Student evaluations of teaching play an important role in the process of evaluating and improving instruction. Collecting reliable and valid data about teaching has become a common practice within Higher Education to make well-informed decisions about course (re)design and teacher’s careers. Over the past few years, growing concerns have been expressed whether student evaluations of teaching can be used as diagnostic tools or whether they are increasingly misused for administrative purposes. It goes without saying that both students and teachers should benefit from valid feedback sources to maintain and improve education. This requires a critical examination of the why, what and how we are collecting such feedback. The present seminar will address the issue of how to improve our feedback practices at UM such that it helps students and teachers to monitor and improve education. After a brief introduction, participants will have ample opportunities to develop ideas for improvement, and assess them against criteria for proven feedback practices.
