ELI Webinar: Improve Your Online Teaching
Improve Your Online Teaching: Integrating Evaluation and Feedback for Pedagogical Change
January 25, 2016

Executive Director, Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching

To improve the quality of online learning, it is essential to identify instructional strategies that are most likely to impact the student learning experience. Using a holistic approach to evaluations, instructors can gain feedback on their own teaching in order to better understand the role and value of various pedagogical approaches within the unique context of their online classroom. For this ELI webinar, we will examine strategies for evaluating online teaching and explore how you can utilize evaluation data to enhance the quality of your online teaching.
After participating in this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Integrate formative and summative evaluation strategies into their online classrooms.
- Operationalize teaching behaviors that align with best practices in online education.
- Create a holistic strategy for utilizing teaching evaluation data to enhance online instruction.
- Utilize self-, peer-, and administrative evaluation data to drive pedagogical change.
