Event Description

Faculty Roles Evolve—and So Should Your Evaluation Process

The roles college faculty play continues to evolve—and that means your evaluation process and performance measures should evolve, too. Unfortunately, too many institutions continue to use antiquated evaluation policies and procedures, meaning your criteria for what makes a great instructor could be missing key data points.

In this webinar, higher education consultant Aaron W. Hughey will reveal evidence-based practices for evaluating faculty and the jobs they need to be doing in today’s dynamic education environment. With fast-changing technology, evolving student bodies, fierce competition, and globalization pressures, you absolutely have to assess performances based on modern standards.

Traditional ways of evaluating faculty simply don’t apply, and in this webinar you will learn what to look for when hiring, why accountability now drives everything in higher education, how tenure and promotion fit into the new era of higher education—and why they must change to stay relevant. You will also learn how performance expectations are changing, what the future holds for faculty evaluations, how to reward high-performing and remediate the laggards, and engage in a constructive campus-wide conversation to get everyone on the same page. Educating is undergoing a radical transformation, and your evaluation standards and practices need to change along with it.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to evaluate college faculty more meaningfully, positively impact their performance, motivate them to achieve their full potential – and take your institution to the next level.
