Reminder: Create your online TEVAL
As we reach the middle of the semester, don't forget to schedule your online TEVALs this semester. The deadline to create an online TEVAL is Dec. 18, but you are encouraged to set them up earlier, so you are prepared for the end of the semester. The last day that you can offer TEVALs to students is Dec. 20. After grades have been released, reports can be retrieved by the primary instructor in Canvas.
The Teaching and Learning Center staff worked with students to produce a video that explains the importance and use of TEVALs, as well as information on how to provide effective feedback for faculty. Please take a few minutes to view this video, and please encourage your students to view it before completing the TEVALs.
Please note that the University Handbook Section C.34 clearly indicates that "student feedback should never be the only source of information about classroom teaching" and that we need to use a "flexible approach to teaching evaluation." Examples of what to include in portfolio assessments of teaching, in addition to student feedback, is also listed in University Handbook Section C.34.
Teaching and Learning Center staff also developed a video to help you set up your TEVALs on Canvas. If you have additional questions, please contact the Teaching and Learning Center at 785-532-7828 or email@example.com.
