A better way to evaluate
SFU’s new online course evaluation system
New: The Teaching and Learning Centre is seeking two individuals to support SFU’s system for student evaluation of teaching and courses. The extended application deadline was April 18, 2016, and interviews for the positions of Manager, Assessment and Course Evaluations, and Course Evaluation Systems Specialist will begin in the near future.
In 2012, SFU launched a project “to develop an updated instrument and process for student evaluation of teaching that reflects new understanding from educational research on such evaluations.”
The project led to the selection of an online system for student evaluation of teaching and courses (SETC) to replace the University’s paper-based evaluation process. The new system is being implemented in stages.
At the same time, the implementation team is developing policies, infrastructure and support systems to ensure that the new system serves the needs of instructors and students as effectively as possible.
This website provides information and resources for instructors, administrators and students. Please take a look around and contact the project team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
