The Intersect of Teaching and Evaluation.
McNeal, Larry; Christy, W. Keith; Chesser, Jo
Interesting and rewarding questions arise around the issues of teaching and learning in higher education classrooms when the right questions are asked. When the focus of teaching and learning is on the teacher, certain questions are asked. For instance, what is the quality of the knowledge that the teacher transmits to students? Another set of questions arises, however, when the teaching process is switched to focus on the learning process. The student as learner involves two entirely different questions about the relationship between teaching and learning. For instance, what is the quality of the learning resulting from the teaching? What is the quality of the enhanced learning capability resulting from the teaching? The primary reason that the teaching and learning issues are so important is that the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education process, through the Educational Leadership Constituent Council, requires a standard-based approach to the teaching and learning process. This paper discusses one program's efforts to move surface teaching and surface evaluation to deep teaching and deep evaluation. (Author)
