Tough Talks: Student Evaluations of Teaching

Guest speaker & facilitator: Jessica Van Slooten, Humanities and English, UW-Green Bay Manitowoc Campus

Student evaluations—these semester rituals provoke intense debate and reactions from faculty, administrators, and students alike. From glowing reviews to low response rates, biased comments to questionable purposes, student evaluations spark conversations about student voice, equitable evaluation, and best practices. In this “tough talk,” we will review current research on student evaluations, learn about models from different institutions, and discuss the future of student evaluations at UWGB. A live stream of the event will be available for those unable to attend in person.
