DATs Cohort 1 Team Meeting

This project supports the work of the Teaching Excellence Task Force and guides departments through a change process known as “Department Action Teams” (DATs). Participating departments/programs will determine ways to apply the Teaching Quality Framework and ensure three voices (self, student, peer) are reflected in teaching evaluation for annual and consequential review. CU Boulder has been successfully running DATs for the last three years to engage in meaningful teaching evaluation change. DATs as a change model was developed as part of an NSF-sponsored Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) project between CU and Colorado State University.

 To learn more about DATs as a change model, expectations, and the submission process, read on. For questions, contact Leslie Alvarez at
