EDUO 9744: Teacher Evaluation – Doing What Matters in Teacher Growth

Teacher evaluation is often rushed, focused on meeting administrative deadlines, and purposed in assigning ratings rather than promoting professional growth. This course tackles a long debated question in professional literature and practice:Is it possible to observe teachers and give feedback which maximizes their development while measuring and evaluating their effectiveness? Using professional literature, interviews and self-reflection, participants examine evaluation as part of a system to promote teacher growth and competence.
