ANALYSIS OF SETS 2009-2019
DEPARTMENT AVERAGE: ORANGE
MONTGOMERY AVERAGE: PURPLE
My student evaluations of teaching show a clear achievement and track record of teaching effectiveness over my ten years at City Tech. I consistently achieved a higher level of scores than the department average. While there are a some lower scores visible, they are limited to either my early years, when I was coming to an understanding of how to teach the students at this institution compare to my previous teaching experience. The more recent low scores are in a section of ARCH 1230 in 2014 that stands as an outlier to the other scores and the inagural section of ARCH/LIB 2205ID in 2016, a new interdisciplinary courses being co-taught for the first time. My adjustments and refinements to my syllabi and teaching techniques in the last three years co-relates to consistent higher scores, with the lowest scores in the ID course over this timeframe.
ID courses are particularly challenging, with students across the college required to take one ID course prior to graduation. This often results in students less enthusiastic about the course content in comparison to discipline courses I teach.
I explore further my teaching effectiveness and factors impacting it in the two reports below as part of my two fellowships in the Living Lab grant.
