College Teaching: An Art or a Science?
Centra, John A.; Bonesteel, Peggy
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, (Student Ratings of Instruction: Issues for Improving Practice No. 43) p7-15 Fall 1990
Research on college teaching supports classifying teaching as much an art as a science. The expectation that student evaluation of teachers can result in exact teacher rankings is unrealistic and stifles the artistry in teaching. However, current evaluation techniques can yield broader classifications of effectiveness and help improve instruction. (MSE)
