In this session, we will discuss the student evaluation of instructors (SEI), how to address it with students, and why we should prepare them to submit their feedback. As the university begins to look at revising student evaluations of instruction, it is important to reflect on their purpose and to consider why it is that we value student feedback in the first place and what we can learn from them. This session will look at the SEIs as we have them now and offer some suggestions for how we can create our own student evaluations to augment the system we currently use. Hosted by Dr. Jennifer Hall. Appropriate for Faculty and Graduate Students.
