There was a time when evaluating faculty in the core areas of teaching, scholarship, and service provided a somewhat reliable method of assessment. Over the last couple of decades, however, the lines between those areas has blurred, and faculty are now shouldering additional responsibilities. Faculty must keep abreast of ever-changing technology and determine if and how to use it in their pedagogies.They also must consider how to deliver high-impact practices, such as undergraduate research and civic engagement, to more of their students. Faculty also are more likely to be engaged in university processes, such as writing reports for accreditation, representing the university in external organizations, and recruiting students. The faculty evaluation process generally has not kept pace with these changing roles and responsibilities. A new monograph, “Refining the Paradigm: Holistic Evaluation of Faculty to Support Faculty and Student Learning,” seeks to offer guidance to higher education institutions in improving faculty assessment.
