2017-2018 Reminders

1. As a reminder, the signed and dated SME from the personnel file must be scanned and inserted into the dossier in section I.A. The SME must define the percentage of effort in the appropriate realms of faculty responsibility.
2. The revised Class Eval RPT Report, which is now available in the Class Eval system, is required for Section II.A.2.a.

Any case that does not contain the required number of peer teaching evaluations must include an explanation in the Department Head’s assessment.
4. In the annotated list of external evaluators (section VII.B.), Department Heads must include a summary or brief list of the materials sent to evaluators (see example).
