Getting Feedback on Teaching

Are students learning what you intend for them to learn? How do you know?

There are many strategies instructors can use to evaluate the effectiveness of their course design and live teaching strategies. You can get feedback from students (and alumni) formally or informally. Invite a colleague to host a focus group at the end of a course. Engage in peer observation with a colleague or group of colleagues. There is no need to wait for the end of the semester evaluation to get feedback and make changes to the course.

The following sections include information on:

  • Getting feedback from students
  • Evaluating your course design
  • Reviewing your course delivery
