G Course Evaluation and Improvement Processes

1 Strategies for Obtaining Student Feedback on Effectiveness of Teaching:

· Midterm evaluation feed-back form to increase instructor’s awareness of the weak and strong points of the class

· End of term college evaluation of course by students ( to be collected by the

department)

· End-of-term debriefing in class of students and teacher regarding what went well and what could have gone better.

2 Other Strategies for Evaluation of Teaching by the Program/Department Instructor :

· Peer observation to benefit from colleagues’ objective feedback and suggestions for improvement.

3 Processes for Improvement of Teaching :

· Training sessions

· Workshops to facilitate the exchange of experiences amongst faculty members

· Regular meetings where problems are discussed and solutions given

· Discussion of challenges in the classroom with colleagues and supervisors

· Encouragement of faculty members to attend professional development conferences.

· Keep up to date with pedagogical theory and practice

· Set goals for achieving excellence in teaching at the beginning of each new semester after reviewing last semester’s teaching strategies and results

4. Processes for Verifying Standards of Student Achievement

· Check marking of a sample of examination papers either by a resident or visiting faculty member

· Students who believe they are under graded can have their papers checked by a second reader.

5 Describe the planning arrangements for periodically reviewing course effectiveness and planning for improvement :

· . Compare syllabus and course description with other universities (including those on the net)

· 2. Bi-annual meetings of faculty members to discuss improvement
