Teaching Observations & Evaluations

Feedback is incredibly important to me, and I lean heavily upon any and all comments that I receive to continually improve my teaching. All feedback - even the most seemingly-negative comments - have a certain degree of truth to them, and thus helps guide my teaching styles, and heavily influence the planning and decisions that I make. In addition to formal observations and evaluations, which I have included samples of here, I also regularly collect impromptu feedback from my students so that I can make on-the-fly adjustments during the course.


Evaluations


Fall 2018

On a scale of 1 (Poor) to 5 (Excellent), I received average scores of:

  • 4.73 for “How well did the instructor create an atmosphere that was respectful of student opinions, ideas, and differences?”

  • 4.64 for “How do you rate the instructor’s knowledge of the subject?”

  • 4.55 for “How do you rate the instructor’s effectiveness at managing class sessions?”
