We use senior exit interviews as well. An excellent source of comprehensive perspectives from the undergraduate student point of view - usually do small group sessions of 3 to 5 students with a short written form plus an hour conversation per session

Exit surveys can be informative. What about surveys say 5 years later on what a student learned that was USEFUL? Perhaps a way to get at material that was tough but worthwhile in retrospect

I love the idea of getting feedback from graduates! I find (as a teacher of a quantitative based course), that students appreciate my class much more after the fact than when they are currently being asked to do very challenging and new things.

Two things: Those of us that are asked to write letters love it when you lay out expectations clearly for your hires....thanks!!

Also, how do you all think evaluation will change now that so many courses are online and can be recorded? Should we have peer reviews happen more since they are "easier" to carry out? Should we have reviews from those outside the institution?

The average scores have been used incorrectly to determine who is placed in the top tier of teaching scores by the P&T and annual evaluation committee. SET can be used to identify patterns in teaching over time but not to compare faculty to another faculty. Ratings should be provided to the faculty only for their self-reflection and improvement purposes, not for evaluating their teachingMany of us do instruction outside the classroom as well. We advise student organizations, prepare students for national competitions, offer study abroad program, supervise independent research study projects, etc. None of these efforts are evaluated with SET system therefore impacts how teachers are evaluated by the P&T and annual evaluation committee. According to our guidelines, SET should be no more than 50% of evaluations, but in reality, it is not the case, at least not in my experience.

Terribly sorry, but I will have to depart for another commitment. I hope we can carry forward this thoughtful discussion.

I have to go, but thanks for a good discussion...

You need support at the higher level (Provost, Dean. etc.) to make an institutional change

Aslihan makes a good point about needing support from the Provost Dean level. Sometimes those leaders are supportive which is an environment where the needle can get moved - unfortunately there are still places where the Provost/Deans are not on board
