Faculty Development

Assessment Tools and Course Evaluations

Faculty at Butler understand that helping our students learn is a continual process, requiring a commitment to assessment and evaluation. One means of our continued focus in enhancing student learning is our annual academic assessment and the considered conversations by departments, programs, and colleges. Another means is the feedback we seek from students.

University Learning Outcomes: Each department and program completes an annual assessment and revision of their student learning outcomes.

IDEA Course Evaluation: Provides the University a consistent means of evaluating courses and faculty, with a dual focus on evaluative and formative assessment.

Butler faculty complete an annual Faculty Activity Report to document their accomplishments in teaching, research, scholarships, and creative work, and service/leadership to the campus and community.
