Provost Conference Series: Advancing Equity in Teaching Excellence: A Celebration and Launch of Departmental Action Teams (DAT)
This is a sample content policy.
Speakers: Leslie Cramblet Alvarez, Sarah Andrews, Noah
Dr. Finkelstein and Dr. Andrews will speak on how expanding the voices and types of evidence considering in understanding and evaluating teaching quality has implications for equity, and on some of the biases inherent in standard measures. This session also formally launches the Department Action Teams (DATs), a cohort of three faculty-led groups considering current practice and determining ways to ensure three voices (self, student, peer) are reflected in teaching evaluation for annual and consequential reviews.
This public kickoff event is envisioned as an opportunity to garner interest, raise awareness, foster engagement, and encourage future participants in advancing quality teaching evaluation at the University of Denver. It will celebrate & acknowledge DU as a leader, situated within a growing national dialogue, and connect, build on & advance work already started at the University of Colorado Boulder. The event will include a welcome by Provost Mary Clark and feature a presentation and Q&A with Noah Finkelstein and Sarah Andrews, leads of the Teaching Quality Framework Initiative (TQF) at CU.
