I'm trying to change my name but it's not working.
Senator John Reitzel
30:41
How did that happen? :)
Senator John Reitzel
32:08
Hi Beth, are you talking right now? I suddenly cannot hear you.
Senator Jill Vassilakos-Long
32:28
She is talking.
Senator John Reitzel
33:32
I heard her when she said we'd start in a few minutes but now I cannot hear her.
Senator Jill Vassilakos-Long
33:54
I don’t know how to help, but people are talking.
Senator John Reitzel
34:08
Thanks. Just started working again. Weird.
Thomas Corrigan
52:13
I didn’t ask for individualized data.
GUEST, Josephine Mendoza
53:59
But if you reference student comments in your FAR for excluded course SOTES, I believe you will need to include SOTES in your FAR so evaluators can refer back to -- I do not think you can include parts of SOTE like the student comments only
Guest-Sastry Pantula (He/His/Him)
54:11
What are the main concerns about including student opinions, as they do take student opinions into consideration, complements also help with recognition in the future beyond RPT, and can help also make adjustments to improve if need be?
Senator Shari McMahan
54:41
Yes, we use SOTE's to advantage faculty!!!
Senator Hosung So
56:43
my microphone/camera is not working properly. If we exclude SOTEs, how do we evaluate teaching effectiveness by? What about virtual classroom visitation?
GUEST, Josephine Mendoza
56:49
What is important for faculty to show is improvement in SOTEs and responsiveness of faculty to students' comments -
Senator R. Chen
58:59
I believe class visitation is still in pace.
Thomas Corrigan
59:04
Syllabi; online course visitations; RPT narrative; participation in teaching and learning PD; frankly, so many more ways to evaluate faculty (AND less problematic)
Guest Seval Yildirim
01:02:45
CBA requires that all SOTEs be conducted so we are simply complying with that.
Guest-Sastry Pantula (He/His/Him)
01:05:24
Wouldn't some faculty excluding them may indicate (correctly or incorrectly) that those who exclude didn't have favorable SOTEs?
Guest Seval Yildirim
01:08:27
SOTEs were administered for all courses.
Thomas Corrigan
01:09:18
Have Department or College RPT committees expressed concerns about their ability to evaluate faculty for RPT purposes?
Senator Hosung So
01:09:45
Do we have any data available on the average SOTE response rates by department, college, and university levels?
Senator Shari McMahan
01:10:21
yes, senator Garcia mentioned that she had trouble evaluating faculty in the senate exec meeting
Thomas Corrigan
01:10:50
Thank you
Guest-Sastry Pantula (He/His/Him)
01:11:46
Just curious, how do that data help?
Clare Weber
01:15:15
Given the time it takes to develop and change policies, I think it would be good for the committee to start now. I also have some suggestions as it relates to WSCUC that I can take directly to the committee.
Senator Shari McMahan
01:17:05
There are some universities that contract out
Clare Weber
01:19:14
Who is the chair of the acad technology committee?
Guest Seval Yildirim
01:31:56
Thanks TC. The issue was not with the CFA, so we should thank the Chancellor’s Office for helping us fix the issue.
Thomas Corrigan
01:34:13
Thanks Seval. I thought local CFA was involved in advocating for our lecturers regarding that issue. If they weren’t involved, I’m sorry for the misinformation.
Doug Freer

In addition to my vaccine update … all counties are currently open for appointments for anyone 65+, frontline health care workers, and some essential workers (Fire, Police, EMS). Please encourage anyone you know who qualifies to jump in line before the counties open to additional priority groups.
Guest-Sastry Pantula (He/His/Him)
02:24:51
Including our nursing faculty and students.
