Quality Forum - Evaluation of Teaching

Using evaluations to improve teaching and demonstrate quality

The University of Otago Strategic direction to 2020 states that excellence in teaching is a strategic imperative, and enhancing the quality of teaching is a high priority.

Evaluating teaching is the primary means of enhancing teaching quality, and similarly, the foundational purpose for evaluating teaching is enhancing and improving teaching and student learning. There are various methods that staff can use to evaluate and improve their teaching, and engaging in this process also produces results that staff can use to demonstrate the quality of their teaching.

In this quality forum we will first give an overview of

  1. The Otago University guidelines for evaluating teaching
  2. The various methods you can use to evaluate and enhance your teaching, and
  3. How you can use the results of these methods to demonstrate the quality of your teaching

Then, we will have a panel discussion where teachers share how they evaluate their teaching and then use this process to demonstrate the quality of their teaching, and where students share their perceptions of evaluation and suggestions for how evaluation can be more effective for improving teaching and learning.

Facilitator: Associate Professor Clinton Golding, Acting Director, Higher Education Development Centre

Karyn Paringatai, Prime Ministers Teaching Award winner 2013
Brad Hurren, National Teaching Award winner 2017
