Course Evaluations

Due to issues of timing and un-coordinated efforts, ALL TEACHERS SHOULD COMPLETE END OF TERM COURSE EVALUATIONS on your own. Next term we will introduce a system to keep the time needed to do these to a minimum, but for this term, please have all of your students provide you with feedback in every course that you teach. If you have questions, see Alisa or Lawrence.
