Teaching Evaluations in Online Classrooms—It Can be Done!
Oct. 9, 2012 – 2:00pm-3:00pm Eastern Time

·         What constitutes effective online teaching?

·         How is the quality of online teaching evaluated on your campus?

At Lake Superior College, a team of experienced online faculty and an administrator with years of online teaching experience tackled this sensitive topic, researching best practices to develop a new process and a new rubric for the administrative evaluation of online teaching. The process has gained strong support of both faculty and administration.

·         The presenters will discuss the online teaching evaluation process from both the faculty and administrative perspective.

·         They will introduce participants to the evaluation rubric and share examples of online faculty evaluations.

·         Participants will gain information about best practices in online teaching evaluation and ideas for developing an evaluation process and rubric.

·         Copies of all evaluation documents, including the evaluation rubric and criteria, will be made available.
