Implementing Effective Evaluation of Teaching and Learning in STEM
Leads: Michael Dennin and Zachary Schultz
Working Group: Adam Leibovich, Andrew Feig, Karen Bjorkman, James Martin, William Dichtel, Lynmarie Posey, Mark Moldwin, Jennifer Ross, Marilyne Stains, Michael Hildreth, Emily Miller (AAU), and Toby Smith (AAU)

Building upon the work of Searching for Better Approaches: Effective Evaluation of Teaching and Learning in STEM this group proposed to expand the impact of the Effective Evaluation of Teaching and Learning (EETL) collaborative project by developing specific guidance for assessing quality teaching. The goal was to create a viable way to implement alternative methods for evaluating teaching and alter the practice of how teaching is recognized and rewarded at R1 institutions, particularly relating to how teaching is evaluated for purposes of promotion and tenure and annual reviews. Principal investigators and collaborators convened a workshop in California on May 2016. Workshop discussions and presentations are summarized in a publication co-sponsored by RCSA and AAU, “Aligning Practice to Policies: Changing the Culture to Recognize and reward Teaching at Research Universities.”
