The Educational Evaluation Committee shall represent faculty interests on issues of 1. Evaluating teaching quality, and 2. Teaching support, including instructional technology, training, and classroom and online environments.

Standing Charges
1. Represent interests of faculty on issues of teaching quality and support (technology, services, resources/training, classroom).
2. Act as a consultative body for the University Evaluation Committee regarding electronic Student Perception of Teaching (eSPOT) survey policies and practices.

Special Charges

  1. Continue to work with department chairs and deans to facilitate the implementation of the “Best Practices” recommendations from the Faculty Senate (2011) on teaching excellence and evaluation.

a. The flyers on “Best Practices for the Evaluation of Teaching” and “Recommended Guidelines for Teaching Evaluation for Deans, Chairs and Committees” was sent from the Provost to the faculty in October 2017. Follow-up with Provost to send out to faculty in April.

b. More effective implementation of these policies must be achieved. Department chairs are often not aware (despite the efforts of this committee and the Provost’s office) and therefore do not fully implement the recommendations. The EEC would like these documents included as part of Department Chair training.

  1. Evaluate the appropriate usage of SPOTs for Annual review, Tenure & Promotion.
    1. Fall 2019: Bring to the floor of the full Faculty Senate the following resolution: (Draft Resolution on next page).

  1. Review IT procedures to make sure faculty have been included in updates/reshoring process.
