Tenure Clock Extensions
Each faculty member will have the right to include (or not include) these evaluations (for any classes taught during the 2020-2021 year) for any purpose such as tenure, promotion, annual review, etc. The reason for gathering course evaluation data is straightforward: everyone can learn from this experience. Collecting the information and providing the feedback on their course to faculty is essential to learning from this experience. It is also important to recognize that because remote teaching requires different skills and communication styles, some faculty may shine in remote teaching who might not shine in a traditional classroom setting. These faculty deserve to receive this positive feedback from their students. We plan to expand the “free form” comments on the course evaluation template to be able to capture more nuanced feedback from students.
