Elevating the Importance of Teaching. National Project III. Final Report.
McIntyre, Charles J.
The University of Illinois' project on the elevation of the importance of teaching consisted of two programs: one to try to better systematize information about teaching effectiveness, and one to develop and validate a peer evaluation questionnaire to secure interpretable information. It is believed that the importance of teaching effectiveness will be elevated if faculty plays a larger role in pay and promotion decisions, and this is an important factor in the project. The development of the project is outlined, and one item is appended: Issue 4 of "Criteria for the Evaluation, Support, and Recognition of College Teachers," dealing with the evaluation of college teachers.
