Distinguished Scientist Lecture Series: Reducing Gender Bias in Teaching Evaluations
Location: Murray-Aikins Dining Hall: 2nd floor Rooms 1 and 2
Time: 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Open to campus community only.
Speaker: Dr. Joey Sprague
Dr. Joey Sprague, professor of sociology and director of undergraduate students at the Univesity of Kansas, will give a lecture and conduct a workshop titled "Reducing Gender Bias in Teaching Evaluations."
Abstracts of workshop presentations:
“Student Ratings: Evaluating Teaching or Evaluating Gender?”
Institutions are placing increasing weight on the use of student rating scales to evaluate teaching. Are these scales evaluating teaching or something else? Decades of research in social cognition and in the sociology of gender demonstrate that we all see one another through gendered lenses. This lecture offers an overview of the main findings in these research traditions and describes studies that directly test the question of whether or not students are holding their teachers to gendered standards.
“Gender & the Evaluation of Teaching: What Can We Do?”
In this workshop, we evaluate and work to improve the reliability and validity of student rating scales now in use. We also think through more generally the implications of evaluation methodology for how to evaluate teaching at this institution.Sponsor:
