Agatucci, Cora; Ahern, Gloria; Mays, Ken; McCown, Jack; Sequeira, Mike
This document provides the peer evaluation guidelines for Central Oregon Community College (COCC). It begins by identifying the goals of the peer team: to maintain and strengthen the quality of instruction at COCC; establish strong collegial ties among faculty members; offer positive suggestions to them for improvement as teachers; and evaluate their performance and growth over time for purposes of rehire, tenure, and promotion. The report offers suggestions for simplifying evaluations and includes criteria for final reports. It also provides common standards for teaching performance at COCC. These include: knowledge, preparation, and understanding of subject material; instructional delivery skills and relationship with students; and course organization. One section describes unique teaching situations at COCC, including: those in labs; the library; computer sciences; film arts, fine arts, music, theater performance and studio classes; social sciences; speech courses; interdisciplinary courses and seminar classes. (Contains guidelines for classroom peer observation and course material review for peer evaluation.) (YKH)
