Free webinar on faculty evaluation next week!

Faculty evaluation is crucial not only for making tenure and promotion decisions, but also to provide helpful formative feedback for colleagues’ continuing development and to ensure the continued growth and improvement of your program. But as faculty evaluating our peers, it can be an uncomfortable and tricky business… and for new chairs and senior faculty, unfamiliar terrain.

You already know I love free development resources. And this particular free webinar, coming up next week from the Wiley Learning Institute, is one I’ve already done with a couple of Augie colleagues. We all found it informative and useful.  So check this out!


Keys to effective and fair faculty evaluation

thursday, April 10, 2014 12:00pm (EDT)

Live Workshop

1.5 hours


A guide to the main issues a department chair faces in conducting personnel evaluations, including types of performance reviews, goals, differences in evaluations of tenured and non-tenured or adjunct faculty, and strategies for using reviews to increase productivity and correct problem behavior.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

• Determine when formative evaluations are more appropriate than summative evaluations
• Identify the ten questions to ask about every faculty evaluation
• Prepare for an oral review of a faculty member
• Choose what to say and what not to say in a written evaluation
• Follow best practices in offering constructive criticism
• Use new strategies to make reviews more positive and forward looking

This open-access event will be recorded & available for 1-week after the live event.  Subscribers will have continuous, uninterrupted access
