COE Peer Evaluation of Teaching Process

College of Engineering (COE) aims to be nationally recognized for engineering education (COE Strategic Plan, Goal #1). To achieve this goal, a comprehensive, inclusive, and effective approach to evaluate teaching is needed. Peer Evaluation of Teaching serves two purposes: (1) create a culture of promoting teaching; (2) ensure a fair process for teaching evaluation.

Per guidance from the Executive Vice Chancellor’s Office, COE uses a 3-pronged approach to evaluate teaching, through peer observation, student feedback, and instructor self-reflection. An overview of the Peer Evaluation of Teaching process in COE is presented in Figure 1.
