No Longer a Spinning Satellite: Designing a Collaborative Faculty Community through Qualitative Assessment
Talerico, Katie
CEA Forum, v39 n2 p75-81 Sum-Fall 2010
While our move to qualitative assessment may not seem significant (again I started not only apathetic but hostile in my approach to assessment), it really did put enthusiasm back into our group. Before we had cringed to stay 10 minutes past quitting time; now we were coming in early on Saturday mornings to voluntarily complete work. The group, no longer at odds with the approach and really believing in what we were doing, also became a cohesive unit where we supported and encouraged each other. We found that assessment could be something that not only showed us what we were doing in our classes, but also was an enriching experience that opened up issues in teaching and writing we had not sought out before.
