Effectual Evaluation Practices for Distance Education

Total Credits: 0.1 CEUs



One significant challenge facing distance education supervisors and administrators involves monitoring and providing timely feedback to instructors. An online campus typically has a lean structure—a small number of deans and department chairs compared to a large, transient adjunct faculty population. Faculty may teach in varying sessions and term lengths within the academic year, which compounds the challenge of completing formal reviews or performance evaluations on a regular schedule. Adding to the challenge, typical formal evaluation forms/tools do not adequately reflect the fluid nature and unique elements of distance education.

This webinar introduces 10 faculty performance indicators (FPI) and shares effective methods for observing online course elements, collecting summative data, and communicating feedback to online faculty in a positive and meaningful way. Emphasis on these 10 FPI supports recent principles of good practice for distance education as outlined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board's Division of Digital Learning.
