A Departmental System for Balancing the Development and Evaluation of College Teaching: A Commentary on Cavanagh.
Bernstein, Daniel J.
Innovative Higher Education, v20 n4 p241-47 Sum 1996
While frank evaluation of instructional improvement needs is an important element in faculty development, it does not work well in a highly evaluative climate. Developmental and evaluative activities can be integrated effectively with a long-range perspective; when periodic evaluations are required, administration should reward effort without improvement during the interim period, allowing teachers time to make needed changes.
