Colleagues as Catalysts for Change in Teaching.
Menges, Robert J.
This paper discusses the use of colleagues as consultants or catalysts in the teaching improvement, or change, process. The paper covers four topics in this area: (1) the recipient of feedback; (2) the relationship between the feedback giver and the feedback receiver; (3) the feedback message; and (4) costs of feedback programs. Although the effectiveness of using colleagues as consultants in the teaching improvement process has yet to be validated experimentally in terms of student outcomes, faculty participants in such programs report high satisfaction, increased motivation, renewed interest in teaching, and increased interaction with other faculty members.
