Building and Documenting Service in Support of Teaching Monday, January 11, 2021, 10:00 - 11:00 AM

 

Olga Kalentizdou (Lecturer, Geography) and J Duncan (Senior Lecturer, Informatics)


How do you build up service in support of your teaching? What are some resources you may use? How do you find opportunities in your department, school, or campus? Service definitions and requirements differ across faculty ranks. While IU policies provide baselines, their interpretation varies across campus units. The panelists will share their expertise and respond to questions from the audience.

Integrating Course Evaluation Open-Ended Responses into your Teaching Portfolio Thursday, January 14, 2021, 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM Cody Kirkpatrick (Senior Lecturer, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences) and Katie Metz (Senior Lecturer, Accounting)

The open-ended responses students provide on course evaluations can be a rich source of evidence for teaching excellence – if you know how to summarize them and identify useful trends. In this session led by Katie Metz (Accounting, Kelley School of Business) and Cody Kirkpatrick (Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences), participants will learn how to sift through the OCQ open-ended responses, and other informal open-ended evaluations, to identify themes that can be used to improve teaching and to document teaching excellence for dossiers and for annual review. This session is a companion to the session entitled “Integrating Course Evaluation Numerical Data into Your Teaching Portfolio” (offered on January 14 at 10:00), and is open to instructors of all ranks, promotion levels, and career paths.
