Start Time:

Session Length:
1 hours 50 minutes
Room:
LSC 374
Description:
Over the last year, TILT has developed a program to develop and evaluate teaching effective at CSU. This program is an extension of the work that began in 2011 by the COTL Evaluating Teaching Effectiveness Task Force and was triggered by revisions to the CSU Faculty Manual (E.12.1 - Teaching and Advising) in December 2017. After extensive research into best practices in teaching and learning, along with feedback from CSU faculty and leadership, the TILT Teaching Effectiveness Team has identified 7 essential criteria for effective teaching and, therefore, student learning. Although the Framework separates each of the criteria, TILT recognizes the deep connections among them and is working to align the framework with the proposed student survey (LENS). The team has developed a program that outlines a process for departments and faculty to set teaching goals and evaluate teaching effectiveness. The program includes a set of tools that can be modified by each department to meet their needs. Join us for a tour of these tools, their alignment to professional development and the research behind it all.
Goals and Target Audience:
Faculty and Administration will be able to compare a proposed teaching development and evaluation process to their current one.
