Task Force on the Evaluation of Teaching

Tuesday, Jun. 5, 2012

In fall 2011, in consultation with the University Coordinating Committee, Provost Jacobs convened a Task Force on the Evaluation of Teaching. The Task Force was asked to recommend a flexible set of guidelines for evaluating effective teaching at Santa Clara University. The charge to the Task Force specified that the guidelines would describe successful practices for collecting and analyzing evidence in support of a balanced assessment of a faculty member’s contributions to teaching and learning. 

Dennis Moberg, Professor of Management, chaired the Task Force. Other members included Eileen Elrod, English and Women’s and Gender Studies; Shoba Krishnan, Electrical Engineering; Lawrence Nelson, Philosophy; Laurie Poe, Mathematics and Computer Science; and Bradley Joondeph, Law.
The Task Force submitted its report and recommendations in June 2012. The full report, with appendices, can be found at (Novell logon and password are required).
Provost Jacobs thanks members of the Task Force for their fine work, thoughtful analysis and recommendations.
