The Recognition and Evaluation of Teaching.
Eble, Kenneth E.
This monograph brings together information and ideas about the recognition and evaluation of effective teaching in the college and university. The materials were gathered in 4 ways: (1) a search of the literature; (2) solicitation of information about systematic attempts to recognize and evaluate teaching: (3) visits to individual campuses and discussion of evaluation as part of these visits; and (4) a conference on April 10, 1970 in Washington, D.C. in which major issues and problems concerning this topic were discussed by students, faculty and administrators from a wide range of institutions. Chapter 1 discusses the need to improve college teaching, some of the reasons why teaching is neglected in favor of research, shaping of professional values, and the place of evaluation. Chapter 2 deals with ways of evaluating teacher effectiveness. Instruments and procedures for student evaluation of effective teaching are discussed in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 deals with the impact of student evaluation on the improvement of teaching, and Chapter 5 discusses the role of student evaluation in faculty review and advancement. Documents relating relevant experiences at individual universities, student evaluation forms, and a bibliography conclude the report. (AF)
