A project was conducted at Mt. Hood (Oregon) Community College to develop modules to upgrade the teaching skills of community college teachers. Two modules developed through this project, Evaluating Your Teaching Effectiveness and Computer-Based Education, are included in this document. The Evaluating Your Teaching Effectiveness packet consists of resource materials and evaluative tools to assist teachers in learning more about evaluating their effectiveness. (These materials supplement a videotape on teaching effectiveness.) Methods covered in the module range from a simple self-check list of teaching skills to a description of an in-depth teaching improvement process that uses several sources of feedback to determine teaching effectiveness and determine strategies for improvement. Materials in the packet are the following: (1) general overview of teaching evaluation, (2) effective teaching, (3) self-evaluation, (4) student evaluation, (5) small group instructional diagnosis, (6) peer evaluation, (7) teaching improvement process, and (8) bibliography. The Computer-Based Education (CBE) packet contains resource materials for further exploration of computer-based teaching. (The packet supplements the videotape of CBE and the first item in the packet is an evaluation form for the videotape.) Information in the packet includes the following: (1) a list of organizations concerned with CBE, (2) a list of educational magazines, (3) an annotated bibliography, (4) an offer of free Radio Shack courses in computers, and (5) an evaluation form concerning the resource materials.
