Identifying Exemplary Teachers: Evidence from Colleagues, Administrators, and Alumni.
Centra, John A.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n65 p51-56 Spr 1996
Research indicates that colleagues, administrators, students, and alumni have all identified similar general characteristics of effective college teachers and teaching and can make valid evaluations of individual teachers. A proposed process for identifying teaching award winners has two stages: (1) nomination using a rating and description form; and (2) use of teaching portfolios for committee selection of winners.
