Supporting Online Teaching Effectiveness at Scale: Achieving Efficiency and Effectiveness Through Peer Review
Emily Donnelli-Sallee, Park University Dana Autry, Park University
This article reports on one institution’s efforts to integrate disparate evaluation procedures for face-to-face, hybrid, and online teaching. The resulting peer review of teaching program brings together all stakeholders involved in formative and summative faculty evaluation through an efficient, scalable model. This model utilizes cross-modal competencies; incorporates discipline-specific priorities; and generates actionable assessment data for the continuous improvement of individual faculty members, academic programs, and administrative units. The peer review program communicates the values and performance expectations held by the institution and provides opportunities for self-reflection, professional development, and community building with fellow peers.
