How can the university evaluate teaching and recognize good teaching practice?
The Teaching Assessment Working Group (TAWG) was established by Vice President Academic and Provost Peter Keller in August 2017 to establish an active conversation among faculty at SFU about how we evaluate teaching and learning beyond SETC (Student Evaluation of Teaching and Courses), SFU’s online student evaluation system. The group was asked to provide a set of strategies to value teaching practice and to make recommendations to facilitate consistency, flexibility and robustness of reviews of teaching practice of use to all stakeholders.
