Overview of the GRCC Faculty Evaluation System
This session provides an overview of the GRCC Faculty Evaluation System. It provides an overview of the different components of the system, explains the required documentation, and provides an opportunity for faculty to ask questions.
Classroom Observation Training
Classroom observations are an important component of the evaluation system but how do you perform effective classroom observations that result in constructive feedback? This session explains the behaviors that characterize effective instruction and assists faculty in using those behaviors as benchmarks for effective and appropriate peer evaluation. It also covers the documentation associated with classroom observations in the Faculty Evaluation System. The session covers information on observation of both face to face and online courses. NOTE: Completion of this session is required before faculty will be permitted to complete classroom observations of peers.
Completing FPE Reports
This session will provide information on the reports that must be completed each year by full-time faculty as part of the Faculty Evaluation System. After completing this session you should understand the general expectations for an effective FPE report, be able to describe the appropriate documentation required for each section of the FPE report, and understand the approval process and due dates for the FPE report.
The portfolio is the primary documentary evidence used for tenure review and promotions in rank. It is used by all tenure and promotion review committees as foundation of their deliberations. This workshop will introduce participants to the portfolio at GRCC and the processes surrounding it. NOTE: completion of this session is required for any faculty member who wishes to serve on a rank or tenure committee.
Understanding Teaching and Assessment Projects in the GRCC Faculty Evaluation System
Each faculty member completing the Yearly Distribution Requirements (YDRs) in the GRCC Faculty Evaluation System must complete one project to assess student learning and one project to improve teaching effectiveness (faculty members completing the satisfactory standards for employment must complete an assessment project but are not required to complete a teaching effectiveness project). How do those projects work? This session addresses the requirements and documentation associated with these projects and offers faculty an opportunity to develop ideas for projects. After completing this session, participants should be able to: 1) articulate the requirements for teaching and assessment projects, 2) complete the necessary documentation for their projects, 3) draft several personal project ideas.
