Linking Evaluation and Reward Systems to Improvements in Teaching and Learning: A Case Study.
Ostheimer, John
In response to re-accreditation recommendations, East Tennessee State University is devising and implementing a plan to use faculty evaluations for the improvement of faculty and the educational program. A task force developing the plan has outlined three major projects: (1) establish baseline data on current status of faculty development efforts and resources particularly as related to quality of teaching and learning, by finding measures of teaching quality, finding measures of quality of learning, and assessing current evaluation of instruction; (2) make indirect improvements in teaching and learning by ensuring maximum faculty commitment and participation, by promoting collegial approaches to improving instruction, assessing current recognition programs, suggesting opportunities to recognize improvements in instructional quality, linking successful efforts to improve teaching to the structure of rewards in professional advancement, linking success in instruction to financial rewards through merit raises, and linking individual faculty plans and efforts to departmental plans; and (3) make direct improvements in teaching and learning through both short term steps and longer range plans.
