This session may be of interest to faculty members/instructors, graduate students, and administrators who are considering different strategies to provide feedback on teaching. In the spring of 2019, the School of Criminology Undergraduate Curriculum Committee designed and implemented a summative assessment process to evaluate our sessional instructors. The purpose of the assessment is to support and provide constructive feedback to our sessional instructors and to help them build their teaching portfolios. The pilot evaluation involved both classroom observations and a review of course materials. After implementation, we identified several challenges related to the processes and substance of the evaluation procedures.

After describing the summative assessment procedure, the facilitators will conduct a short mock lecture as part of an activity that will require audience members to create measures that capture the strengths and weaknesses of the lesson. The session outcomes are to facilitate rich dialogue on the topic of best practices of instructor evaluation that go beyond SETC and to engage in discussion about the challenges we faced in piloting our evaluation process. We hope that this session will facilitate the ongoing reform of the teaching evaluation process both within the School of Criminology and across the institution.
