SC 27 #1 Courage and Course Evaluations

At the end of each academic semester, as students are racing to prepare for finals and professors are scrambling to grade papers and exams, our colleges and universities ask course evaluations to be completed.  Students and professors have many questions about this ritual.  Students may be wondering how confidential their responses are, or if anyone reads the evaluations, or what effects their comments may actually have on a professor’s teaching method and course.  Professors may see evaluations as an interruption as they try to cover the planned class material before the semester runs out.  They may see evaluations with a sense of dread if the semester did not go well, and they may wonder how administrators will react to the evaluations.  They may just wonder what their students think of them.

In this podcast, we’ll look at why evaluations are important—and not just those that take place at the end of the term.  We’ll discuss what the best kinds of evaluations are, and how students, professors and administrators can all benefit from the process, if the process is performed correctly.
