Teaching Excellence Workshop:
Getting Good Student Teaching Evaluations
Thursday, August 26, 2010, 3:30-4:45 p.m.

The best way to get good teaching evaluations from students is to be a good teacher. Good teaching involves both content mastery and interpersonal rapport. Dr. Jed Lyons will share responses from veteran faculty about how to maintain rigor in course content in such a way that the students are educated as well as engaged. Required and suggested methods for student feedback on instruction will also be discussed.
