It will be teleconferenced between 3M Auditorium, Room 150, Owens Science Hall, on the St. Paul campus, and the Schulze Hall auditorium on the Minneapolis campus. All faculty, deans and academic administrators are invited to participate. Last spring, the Faculty Senate approved the adoption of the IDEA system for receiving student reactions to instruction and courses beginning this semester. The forum will focus on issues related to implementing the IDEA system as part of improving and assessing teaching. The forum will open with some informational comments by members of the Committee on Teaching Evaluation, with most of its time devoted to discussion.
