Teachers Talking: Course Evaluations

On Thursday, December 6th our focus will be on one of the responsibilities of Gustavus faculty listed in the Faculty Handbook: to evaluate their courses. Please join colleagues from across the campus to talk about these questions: what do we as faculty want course evaluations to be? what purpose do they serve for us? how should courses be evaluated? how is the current system of course evaluation working? what should new faculty learn about course evaluation at Gustavus?
