Faculty Evaluation Forum 2021On Friday, April 23, 2021, the Teaching & Learning Excellence Division (TLED) hosted an Open Forum on Faculty Evaluation.

This event was an opportunity for faculty to hear updates from the Shared Governance Faculty Development and Evaluation Committee, and the TLED Faculty Development and Evaluation Office.

Dr. Philip Stark, Professor of Statistics, Associate Dean in the Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, and Interim Regional Associate Dean, College of Chemistry and Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at University of California, Berkeley, keynoted the event. He is renowned for his research on making course evaluations actionable and equitable and presented a growing body of research that shows that traditional student course evaluations are not accurately reflecting the teaching skills of professors. In fact, the data suggests that bias exists against women and people of color.

Much work is in progress to make the faculty evaluation process more equitable, more meaningful, and more relevant to faculty, department chairs, and students. A captioned recording of the event is available to view for those who missed the event, as well as the PPT slides.
