Faculty evaluations: It’s your turn

How to give faculty feedback that truly makes a difference

In addition to papers and exams, you could be completing up to five evaluations over the next few weeks. How can you make sure that what you write actually make a difference? We thought we’d ask our 2015 Distinguished Teaching Award winners for their suggestions.

Tip #1: Flattery on its own will get you (and your faculty member) nowhere
 


 

Tip #2: Be constructive—not destructive


 

Tip #3: We want to see you be brave


 

Tip #4: Have your voice heard


 

Tip #5: Tell your faculty member how to improve, not just how they suck
