Fall Teaching & Learning Workshops

Preparing for Peer Review of Teaching (Virtual Interactive Workshop)

Wednesday, October 19, 2022, 9:00am-10:30am

Peer review of teaching is an important part of the advancement, reappointment, and promotion process for instructors of all ranks. This workshop is designed to prepare both reviewers tasked with conducting peer review and instructors who expect to be observed or reviewed. We will discuss peer review of in-person classroom instruction, peer review of online teaching, and peer review of course materials.

If you wish to attend the workshop or to receive the notes after the peer review workshop, please register.

Reading Group on Bias in Student Feedback

Monday, January 30, 2023, 10:30am-12:30pm

In recent years, a slew of research articles have alleged that our students may be biased against instructors in their ratings of teaching. While these studies garnered attention for suggesting that women and marginalized groups are treated unfairly, they also reveal that influences on student feedback are complex and the available evidence sometimes contradictory. How convincing is evidence showing bias in student feedback, and how strong is the effect? What should we do about it? In this session we try to answer these questions by exploring and discussing the recent literature on student feedback. 

To attend this session, we ask that each participant read two articles in advance. The first is Kreitzer and Sweet-Cushman's, 2021 meta-analysis of the literature, which we will all read together. Participants will select a second article of their choice from our shared folder   (or may contribute a new article to the folder) on which they will be asked to briefly report.

If you wish to participate in and attend this reading group, please register (registration capped at 20 to facilitate discussion; this session will not be recorded).
