Abstract:The prospect of being observed while teaching can provoke anxiety even in the most experienced instructors; however, many institutions of higher learning annually observe all faculty members on the basis of content and andragogical approach. What value does the instructor evaluation process add to the institution? This paper provides some insight by offering vantages of online instructor evaluation from a variety of roles: the evaluator, the instructor/evalutee, the academic department, the university administration, and the student. Each role is deconstructed by experienced online evaluators. From the evaluator’s perspective, the relationship between the evaluator and the person evaluated (evalutee) is discussed, and mentorship and evaluation are distinguished. From the instructor view, potential pitfalls are introduced. Student surveys are presented as a vehicle to gather data on the student perspective.
