In this episode, Valerie Simmons, a Management Information Analyst from Arizona State University’s College of Nursing and Health Innovation joins the instructional designers from Academic Innovation (Celia Coochwytewa, Jinnette Senecal, Aaron Kraft, and Steven Crawford) to describe the purpose of end-of-course evaluations. We also identify what faculty can do to improve student response rates and discuss how faculty can use the end-of-course evaluations to improve their courses.
