Call for Content Experts to Assist with Student Course Evaluation Questions Revision
Interested in assisting with revising student course evaluations? The Student Course Evaluation Workgroup needs your help.  We need 50 experienced faculty, some from each AOS (Area of Study), who understand the breadth of the College’s course offerings to serve as content experts. Those willing to help will complete a survey of questions, suggesting additions and edits to ensure that the questions are actionable, valid, as free as possible from bias, and measure the correct aspect of teaching. We anticipate it may take 8 to 10 hours to complete the survey.  Go here to sign up by October 16. 

You can find more information on these in the Senate Standard 5.4
