Teaching Performance

  • Teach a course load appropriate to their field or discipline
  • Plan and organize instruction in ways that maximize documented student learning
  • Employ appropriate teaching and learning strategies to communicate subject matter to students
  • Modify, where appropriate, instructional methods and strategies to meet diverse student needs
  • Employ available instructional technology, i.e., the Internet, telecourses and interactive technology when appropriate
  • Encourage the development of communication skills and higher order thinking skills through appropriate assignments
  • Incorporate core competencies into curriculum
  • Develop, update, and post course syllabi in a timely manner in accordance with program and divisional policies
  • Provide ADA-compliant material and other accommodations to students with proper documentation

 

Evaluation of Student Learning

  • Establish meaningful student learning outcomes for courses/programs
  • Develop and explain methods that fairly measure student progress toward student learning outcomes
  • Evaluate student performance fairly and consistently and return student work promptly to promote maximum learning

  • Exercise stewardship of College facilities and materials
  • Respond in a timely fashion to information requests from College, division, and program administrators
  • Post all final grades no later than the required date for each term as listed on the College academic calendar

 

On campus/Seated Class Expectations

  • Faculty should, when scheduling allows, be available before and/or after each class for discussions with students. Faculty are also expected to be available for scheduled appointments with students at other times.
  • Adequately prepare for each class session, which may include, but is not limited to, reviewing/creating appropriate material for instructional delivery, appropriate assessments and classroom activities
  • Take attendance in each class, which includes posting to Self-Service for the census date, posting at least weekly after the census date and finalizing the attendance at the end of the applicable term

 

Online/Hybrid Class Expectations

  • Have an active presence in online and hybrid classes. This can be accomplished through regular announcements in the News forum, instructor contributions in forums and journals, scheduled chats, substantive feedback on student work, lesson summaries, and email and/or messages to individual students.
  • Reply to student questions within 48 hours on instructional days. Due to the number of students accessing online content on the weekend, instructors are encouraged to respond on the weekend or adjust due dates so they do not fall on the weekend or on Mondays.
  • Grade and return all assignments (which include all quizzes, tests, written assignments) within 5 instructional days of the due date for all 8-week courses, and within 10 instructional days of the due date for courses longer than 8 weeks
  • Utilize the Moodle gradebook (or other academic department pre-approved gradebook) to post grades for students so they can easily view their progress in the course
  • Use at least one form of assessment other than the online quizzes and tests that are automatically graded via Moodle’s assessment manager. Assessments may include a variety of activities or assignments that are completed in Journals, Blogs, Wikis, Assignments and Forums.  These alternative assessments provide an avenue for instructor feedback to the student and do not rely solely on automatic grading in Moodle.
  • Monitor attendance in each class, which includes posting to Self Service for the census date, submitting appropriate notifications when a student is inactive in a class for a week and finalizing the attendance at the end of the applicable term
