Changing practices in faculty evaluation by Peter Seldin( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in English and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A guide to understanding and improving faculty evaluation procedures at all types of colleges and universities is presented. The causes of today's crisis in higher education and survival strategies are reviewed, and the search for solvency is related to major changes in assessing faculty performance. The proliferation of court challenges to administrative decisions on promotion, tenure, retention, and the extension of civil rights legislation to faculty evaluation programs, are also examined. In addition to reviewing a 1983 study of policies, practices, and attitudes toward faculty evaluation at 615 public and private liberal arts colleges, comparisons are made to 1978 and 1973 studies of this topic. Key changes are illustrated by 31 tables and graphs. Commentaries of seven prominent educators on changing practices revealed by the 1983 study and the implications for higher education are provided, and their projections of faculty evaluation for the year 2000 are also offered. Finally, the steps for constructing successful faculty evaluation programs are detailed, and consideration is given to: faculty evaluations by students, colleagues, the teachers themselves; and evaluating the teacher's institutional and community service responsibilities. Faculty appraisal forms are included. (Sw)

Successful faculty evaluation programs : a practical guide to improve faculty performance and promotion/tenure decisions by Peter Seldin( Book )

10 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seven separate areas of faculty evaluation are discussed: student, colleague and self-assessment, student learning, student advising, institutional service, and research and publication. Designed for use by faculty and administrators, this book is intended to serve as a practical resource in developing and upgrading programs for evaluation. Each of the guidelines, forms and strategies has been field-tested and adjusted for workability. To provide a national framework to institutions setting up new programs, chapter two provides key findings of the writer's 1978 survey of 678 public and private colleges and their faculty appraisal practices. Four models in successful use today are described in chapter nine. Several suggestions on faculty evaluation are offered, including: administrators, faculty, and students should contribute to the construction of the evaluation program; appraisal of faculty performance must be the basis for every personnel decision; the administration and scoring of the evaluations must be standardized; and evaluators must be adequately trained. An appendix and a bibliography are provided. (Lc)

How colleges evaluate professors : current policies and practices in evaluating classroom teaching performance in liberal arts colleges by Peter Seldin( Book )

6 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much has occurred in higher education to lead to expectation for change in the process of evaluation. The academic deans of all accredited private liberal arts colleges were asked to report on the procedures used in rating both overall and teaching performance, with 83.5 percent replying. Purposes of the questionnaire were to: (1) determine the relative level of importance placed on classroom teaching in the evaluation of overall performance of faculty members; (2) determine the types of information upon which evaluation of teaching performance is based; and (3) compare faculty evaluation policies and procedures during the contractions of the 1970's with the expansion of the mid-1960'S. Important findings included: (1) significant declines in importance between 1966 and 1973 were recorded for research and publication; (2) campus committee work and student advising increased sharply as "major factors" in faculty evaluations; (3) in evaluating teaching performance, the deans' reliance on "systematic student ratings" increased significantly; and (4) whereas the importance of chairman's and dean's evaluations retained a prominent position in teaching evaluation, committee evaluation increased in prominence. Specific recommendations and an extensive bibliography are included in the publication. (Author)
Teaching professors to teach : case studies and methods of faculty development in British universities today by Peter Seldin( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problems that turn up while trying to improve teaching and learning are rarely exclusive to one higher education system or one nation. British efforts at faculty development go back many years, and an examination of them may be helpful to members of other systems. Although British universities differ from American ones in ethos, history, and tradition, they are more diversified than other systems in Western Europe. In this sense they are often similar to those in the United States. Certainly the research training and orientation of professors is similar. In this review the structures and control of British universities, and the intense interest in faculty development, are examined. The British experience with the improvement of teaching is scrutinized, with a close look at the University of London and the University of Surrey. The teaching improvement activities are summarized, and those that are not transferable to the American institution are sorted out. (Mse)
