Teaching Evaluations 2.0

Peer evaluation and course evaluations are a critical process for any faculty member. These reviews are valuable not just for the advancement process but also as a reflection on teaching. Each evaluation should provide the educator with information on what is going well and what areas to improve upon. As educators, we never stop growing and this feedback is critical to our continued growth and development.

The OCATS team has trained members that are able to provide a peer evaluation for instructor use and for departmental use as part of the advancement process. We are also available to train individuals as peer reviewers. To schedule a review or to request training please contact OCATS.
