About this Event
Join PETAL in a critical conversation on the use and impact of student evaluations of teaching to measure teaching performance, student learning, and instructional best practices. This session features a panel of UM faculty who will identify the ways in which student evaluations of teaching are weakly related to other measures of teaching effectiveness and student learning and can systematically disadvantage faculty from marginalized groups. Special attention will be given to the possible impact of using student evaluations of teaching in making decisions about hiring, contract renewal, promotion, and tenure. UM Faculty will also engage University of Miami’s visions of teaching excellence and provide potential strategies for addressing teaching evaluation issues.
