Fall 2012 Faculty Self-Evaluation Summaries (with actions to be taken)

 

After reviewing your student evaluations, what do you think went well in this class?

 

       No major complaints.

       Students enjoyed the face to face sessions, and that they enjoyed the application project to link theories with practice.

       The community building was successful. Students enjoyed knowing one another and collaboration for the most part.

       I think the course is structured well for an online course.  The expectations are clear and students have access to a number of resources.  I also think that, although I tend to provide very detailed feedback that can be intimidating for some people, mos

       Yes, I was glad to see the surveys because I recieved more positive feedback than I expected.

       It looks like students liked the way the course was set and run.  they thought the grading was fair.  they liked the textbook.

       I think the class went well overall.  The students indicate that they understood what was expected and when everything was due.  My availability and quick response to emails also seemed to be appreciated by the students.

       Not a big response from this class, but those that did respond seemed to enjoy the class.  they thought the book was good and that the grading was fair.

       I think this class went well.  Students seemed to take away a better understanding of how ethics could affect their careers.

       The students seemed to enjoy the course and the material.

       I think my availability and quick response to emails was a good factor.

       The course seems to be a hit with the great majority of students.  So, organization & content of the course are outstanding.

       Online video lectures, weekly assignments.

       Many things went well. First, students really enjoyed learning about the importance of research in education and value its importance now more than before. I think this was due to 1) the videos posted every week and 2) the discussion posts. Secondly, I t

       The student appreciated the organization I provided. They expressed that the course flowed well and was set up in a user friendly fashion.

       Students were generally pleased with the instructional experiences.  The younger students would like more online, even though they enjoyed the speakers and the older people like more face-to-face time.  Many commented that the speakers were worth the fac

       No students completed this evaluation because only one was an official online student.

       This is not a course, it is individual support for doctoral students writing dissertations.  None filled out the Student Evaluation of Instruction, which I suspect is because the form isn't applicable to this situation.

       If the students were motivated and tech savvy, they were able to do the work.  The videos of demonstrations were well received (in class discussions) and good thoughtful reasons were provided by a few students as to why the videos could be an improvement

       No students completed online evaluations, this section is not for the online cohort.

       I analyze each question of the quiz after students had submitted them. The class was very organized. The students understood exactly what was expected of them for every assignment. I was fair and understanding to the students.

       The class was well received.

       The class materials matched most assignments given. The textbook and assignments are extremely helpful. Being nice and willing to help. Helps to motivate the students. Shows an extensive knowledge in this course.

       The class was well received.

       I am happy that my students found me to be accessible, fair, and encouraging. Since we did not meet face to face, I had to be mindful of giving students encouragement via email and CourseDen. This was especially important when I asked for assignment revi

       Online materials.

       The review sessions were useful and having a bonus quiz really helped.

       All aspects of the course received positive comments. I especially feel that the comments on usefulness of the content in the field were strong. Also, comments on professor were very positive.

       Keeping the assignment requirements flexible with regard to deadlines. Being continually responsive to student questions. Assignment structures in general.

       Students appreciated learning about the content in this course and indicated it would be useful in their jobs. Comments on professor were also very positive.

       Everything. Comments in every area were highly positive, from content, to delivery, to grading, to professor. Comments about using everything we covered in the class were repeatedly stated. It was mentioned that projects done in class were immediately ap

       This was the first time for this class and there were only three students.  The adaptations I made from the undergraduate version of this course seemed to work here.  I did not make them drive to campus but once.  Two of the three were two hours away.

What was problematic?  What needs to be improved?

 

       core_2

       Quizzzes on CourseDen are difficult to implement as desired.

       The various deadlines of the course projects. I believe I can build it into the course calendar besides putting the dates into syllabus and course plan.

       Students did not understand the objectives of the assignments, thus mistakenly thinking I did not do much to run the course.

       I think that I need to put the students into research teams so that they can receive peer mentorship.  Some of the students expressed wanting to "talk through" the research process with others.  This may be an effective way to help them learn. Also, I wa

       They did indicate the students feel the textbook needs to be improved which corresponds to the objectives of a committee I am on this semester pursuing just that.

       I did not see any specific problems in this class that need to be addressed at this time.

       A couple of students said they would have liked a video lecture occasionally instead of having to just read.  I thought that was a good idea.

       Well the price of the book was an issue, but hopefully as more are used in the class there will be more used books available at lower prices.

       I don't think the journal reflections went over well.

       Some respondants complained about the book being too long and the test being too detailed.  But I am not sure things are things that need to be changed.

       I was bothered that one student said they did not buy the book and still did well in the class.  I probably need to make sire the text integrates well and is actually necessary to own it to pass if I am going to require it.

       None was mentioned over which I have control or will not compromised the integrity of the learning experience.

       Expectations of students coming into the program. There seems to be an attitude that because they pay for this, they should automatically pass and earn an A on every assignment.

       One thing that was problematic was my grading. I put TOO much point value on the final paper and have remedied this for next semester. Another thing is the discussions. I agree with the student evaluations that there should be some more strict guidelines

       Providing an action research report at the beginning of the semester would have been helpful. I wish I assigned them to read an action research article so they could see what specifically happens with action research projects prior to them having to desi

       The focus on standardized assessments. The text they bought for the course (not my choice - was decided prior to my arrival at UWG) was not good and I did not effectively provide them with supplemental information like I should have this semester.

       The course was a two course sequence so the online version of the textbook only lasted 6 months making it difficult for students. I will make sure to explain this to students or require a different format.

       We have people who live more than an hour and a half away.  We have made arrangements for alternate assignments for them on face-to-face nights.  That seems to work.

       This is a doctoral advising section so this is mostly and independent study.

       This is not relevant because it is an independent study course.

       The students have only one attempt for assignments. The final exam weighted in a higher percentage.

       No major problems other than trying to get more students to complete evaluations.

       The voice is too soothing for an 9am class. Accent makes it difficult to understand. The math content is challenging for some students.

       No major problems.

       In spite of my best efforts, I had a low response rate this semester--around 40 percent. My students did not make any suggestions for improvement in the comments section, but I attribute this to the low response rate. However, looking at the Distance Ed

       More videos needed for this course.

       Getting every student to participate is a challenge. Some students enrol in the class and never look at the slides or the presentations.

       Nothing. (I make changes in this course each year due to the nature of content. It is an issues course, and as issues change in the profession, I update course requirements.)

       I did not find too much that was problematic this time

       I'm not sure many of the students are disciplined enough to handle a class that meets online. They forgot many of their online assignment due dates in spite of reminders.

       Some students are not disciplined or mature enough to know how to handle a course that meets once a week. They would forget the "online" portion of the class quite often. I believe they thought at times that the class was simply once a week.

       There were no problems. I will continue to try to respond to all students as soon as possible for feedback.

       Some students had difficulty writing research papers. I will continue to help them with the writing process.

       I need to learn more about Web 2.0 and D2L.

       They missed the guest speakers and they heard they were good.

       For me, the main problem with this course is that because this was my first semester at UWG, the course was designed online before I arrived on campus and based on a textbook I did not select. Because all that was done for me by someone with whom I worke

       I think the course could be improved by using additional examples, video clips, and adding more variety to the assignments. Two students in the course were allotted additional time on all quizzes and exams. Disabling their gradebook columns after I'd tra

       Clarify with students the turn-around time for scoring papers.  Students should allow two weeks for return of lengthy projects.

       I served as the chair of a student's EdS research project because of my area of expertise. However, I am not a faculty member of this student's program and was not given policies, procedures, or deadlines by this program's faculty.

       undergrads had a hard time staying on task when not seeing a person face to face daily

       It appears that communication can be improved.  The students indicated that they would like more face to face time.

       The students want more online content, but I am not sure that would meet the goals of the course

 

 

What do you plan to change next time you teach the course?

 

       i am withholding comment until i have done a semester with D2L.

       I will mandate more online virtual meetings to encourage student-professor interactions.

       I will be more expressive about the purpose behind each project, so that they knew how much effort was put in designing such project that will help them learn more effectively.

       To require meetings with me and to use research teams. I also want to provide more examples of published articles that students can refer to as models of how their papers should look.

       The next semester I will be running the course the same way but will be significantly changing the content and approach for fall 20013.

       Nothing

       I plan to try to incorporate a short video lecture.

       Nothing - but might take a look at changing up discussion questions

       I will remove the journal reflection assignment.

       No more journal reflections and I might try to put in links to recent cases.

       Better integration of textbook resources.

       Based on the majority of students input, try to keep doing what I am already doing. Of course, as is the nature of this beast, I will continue to evolve the class to be better.

       Hopefully, I will not be teaching this online again. Teaching online is not the best for this type of course. As a result, the course is watered down a lot and even with it being watered down we are still getting tons of complaints of how difficult it is

       A few things: 1) Add guidelines to the discussion posts to ensure students feel everyone is participating equally; 2) adjust the grading so the final paper doesn't count for so much of the grade; and 3) have the course begin with them reading a research

       What I had mentioned - starting the class with having them read an action research report. That way they will know what they are striving to design and implement in the course.

       More focus on standardized assessment. Although they really enjoyed the various types of assessments we discussed, I am working on developing a strong module dedicated to standardized testing.

       Make more videos.

       Offer credit for viewing the slides and then including a quiz right at the end. So that the score will count towards the final grade.

       I will definitely give more practice on these concepts prior to grading submissions through online sessions.

       Provide students with single pages that always have assignment instructions and then inform them where/how to read these pages.

       I plan to have more face to face meetings and be more engaging. I will tape narrated lectures as well.

       Two sets of assignments to accommodate students who work full time and cannot attend campus events

 

 

What was the largest adjustment you made in teaching a distance course, and how was this addressed?

 

       I am adjusting to the lack of personal contact.

       I made video tutorials for the project besides the assignment guidelines and rubrics. I made rubrics for all the assignments in the class, so that students knew what was expected of them in each project.

       I moved gifting and some parts on line, including resident experts. Students did not feel they had my guidance, so I will provide more guidance next time.

       After a few weeks into the semester, I realized that I needed to meet with the students individually.  I implemented a requirement that we meet individually either in-person, by phone, or online.  This was not in my original plan, but I felt it was neces

       I have been teaching distance for a while so I did not have to make any adjustments.

       I tend to be a little more generous in grading some of the more subjective assignments because the exams tend to be a bit more difficult.

       I have been teaching distance for a while so at this point I did not feel I needed to make any adjustments.

       This was a tough course to teach online but I added ethical dilemmas which I think went over well.

       None - this is the second time I taught it so I felt pretty good about it.

       The tests were probably a little more difficult due to students only having the text to rely on.  I probably compensated for that by being a little easier in grading the more subjective assignments.

       Packaging the course for asynchronous delivery.  I normally spend the entire summer and most of the school year doing this.  It is a never ending task.

       I always try to make technology more personalized. Sometimes I have technology awards for students who indicate how they integrate innovative technology in their classrooms related to literacy learning across the content areas.

       I do not know much about D2L and with my other assignments, I don't have time to go to training.  I need to focus in on one thing I want to learn and get a Dr. D visit.

After reviewing student evaluation questions, what do you think of the level of non-academic support provided for this course by student services, the library, the distance education center, and the instructor?

 

 

       Support from Distance Education has been excellent when needed.

       I think there could be more technical support for students. For example, students ran into issues of accessing and managing Inspiration software. But i had to intervene because they did not get the support elsewhere.

       Students are in generally pleased. However, they could be more support on wikispace, so that students don't get confused between courseden and wikispace.

       It doesn't appear that the students are using much non-academic support.  Based on their evaluations of the distance ed, it doesn't appear that they are aware of those resources. When they had questions, I tried to be very responsive, but they probably d

       I had excellent comments from the 9 students who made them on the instructor so I now need to find ways to expand the pool of students who are this motivated by the course.  There were no comments regarding the non-academic support, student services, or

       It does not appear as if students take advantage of the resources outside the class.

       Sounds like it was fine.

       these students seemed to use the library and found all services to be good.

       Students seemed fine in this area.

       Not many respondants, but overall they seemed to be fine.

       Sounds like it was fine.

       The UWG DDE folks continue to do an outstanding work and support. I am glad we are moving to D2L.  I never cared for the centralized approach to running LMS.  I am hoping that individual faculty as well as campuses have more flexibility on customization

       Students services, library, and distance ed support is really not applicable for our program. The students really need more instructor/TA support very late at night, but we are not a University of Phoenix and able to provide 24/7 assignment help.

       I think it's okay, although I would like to work with the library on delivering some information via online to students about conducting literature reviews.

       It is fine, although I would like to work with the library on developing some online information on conducting literature reviews, if they don't already have them available. Something I need to look into for this upcoming semester.

       Fine.

       As an instructor, I tried to address all student concerns, both academic and non-academic. I am not sure of the extent to which students asked and received support from the library or the distance education center."

       I think the students received all the support requested and had all the resources needed to be successful.

       I think the students don't use the resources available to them enough, particularly the library. I do not think it is the fault of the university I think it is the students we teach. I think the student felt supported by the instructor but again didn't s

       It is good.  They do not always use it.

       No students completed evaluations.

       This is not a course, it is individual support for doctoral students writing dissertations.  None filled out the Student Evaluation of Instruction, which I suspect is because the form isn't applicable to this situation.

       As an instructor, this was my first time assigned to the Hybrid section and so I do need to improve on certain aspects - mainly mechanical aspects of the course for students who want to be treated not as university students on track to be professional ed

       Student services received very good ratings (median score of 4/5) for advising, financial aid, and career services. The student evaluations recognize Distance Learning's support: the question "The Distance Learning helpline was helpful to me" had a media

       All appeared to be good.

       On arrival, there was little support offered, and little known of due to the chaotic nature of arrival for this position.

       It seemed to be good, especially the help from support staff with Tk20.

       Good.

       Suitable for the content of the course and the level of the course.

       I think that all went well from all the areas listed in the question. I particularly like the turnitin site used for submitting papers. Students seem to like turnitin's ability to display suggestions for improvement. I do wish that students had assistanc

       The support was sufficient. They need to learn that they are no longer at home or in H.S. They need to learn to be responsible for their work.

       I believe the support is sufficient for college students. They are no longer in H.S. and need to take responsibility for their work or lack of it.

       The online support is greatly appreciated!

       I enjoy learning new technology. I appreciate the help of the tech assistants! My students benefit from using more technology resources to improve their classroom teaching.

       Good

       I think that ample help is available, should the student seek it. Successful distance learning requires a group effort, and I think the university has done a good job to address online student needs.

       Good.

       Student did not respond to these types of questions.

 

       The results seem positive for the most part.
