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.
Here, they read some comments from their evaluations and share tips for what really matters if you’re looking to give feedback that truly inspires positive change in classrooms across campus.
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
