My newest blog post, about the importance of dissent in the community college, is not quite ready to publish, but in the meantime, I found this quite interesting article on the dangers of classroom observation. It seems obvious to me that college instructors and university professors cannot be evaluated in the same way that K-12 instructors are evaluated. At the very least, faculty members should have some say in how they are evaluated, shouldn’t they?
Anyway, here is a link to the article from “Inside Higher Ed.”
“Observations of Professors: Tread Lightly” by Jonathan M. Golding and Phillipp J. Kraemer
