Although evaluating students may be simple, evaluating good teaching has proven to be far more difficult. The Teaching Assessment Working Group, created in 2017, conducted a survey of instructional staff at SFU in order to understand how teaching and learning is evaluated beyond the current Student Evaluation of Teaching and Courses (SETC) system. Participants report relying on feedback they receive from students, both formally and informally, when making changes to their teaching but they are concerned that SETCs appear to be the dominant factor considered by administrators in salary reviews. This session will discuss these findings as well participants’ perception about how teaching is valued at SFU and how teaching evaluation can be improved. Following our presentation, we will encourage audience members to discuss current methods of teaching evaluation, as well as if and how they can be improved. We hope that instructors and administrators will walk away with a better understanding of instructors’ perceptions of teaching evaluation systems at SFU.
