报告题目:Evaluating University Teaching

时间: 12 月 6 日下午 1:30–3:30

地点:陈瑞球楼 242 会议室

报告摘要:

In this presentation, I will first discuss the value and necessity of evaluating university teaching. I will then share the results of an international survey, carried out by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), of common approaches to fostering quality teaching including evaluation, and discuss issues concerning validity and reliability associated with the most common approach: student course ratings. I will end the presentation by elaborating on how teaching is evaluated at McGill University.
