Teaching Evaluation

A critical lever to advance evidence-informed innovations to undergraduate education is to influence the way faculty members view their teaching responsibilities and create more equitable and effective means to evaluate educational contributions within faculty rewards structures.

The Association of American Universities is committed to implementing better methods to evaluate effective and inclusive teaching at research universities. AAU is partnering with member campuses to develop practices to value, recognize, and reward the full range of intellectual work that goes into teaching as part of faculty promotion and annual review structures.

AAU is supporting five AAU STEM Department Demonstration Projects and a broader AAU Learning Community to leverage faculty rewards structures as mechanisms to support teaching reforms.
