CTE Session: Getting Good Teaching Evaluations

Center for Teaching Excellence, Thomas Cooper Library, Room 511
Sep 2, 2011 - 1:10 PM

The best way to get good teaching evaluations from students is to be a good teacher. Good teaching involves both content mastery and interpersonal rapport. Dr. Jed Lyons will share responses from veteran faculty about how to maintain rigor in course content in such a way that the students are educated as well as engaged. Required and suggested methods for student feedback on instruction will also be discussed.  Participants are invited to bring a bag lunch or pick up a sandwich from the coffee shop on the main level of the library. Drinks and chips will be provided.

 Please register for this event online at, by email, or by phone 803-777-8322.
