A lecturer with more than 10 years of experience and proven record of excellence in both teaching and academic service failed to complete his teaching self-assessment. In general, the teaching assessment process takes into account four components:
- By students: current grade > 95%
- By program comite: current grade > 95%
- By faculty council: current grade > 95%
- By himself: current grade 0% - he forgot to answer the self-assessment.
After calculating the final grade, the lecturer failed the overall teaching evaluation.
In the absence of clear local regulation and according to your institution, what should be a reasonable sanction for this case?
- The lecturer presents an improvement plan and continues
- The lecturer is suspended for 1 semester, presents an improvement plan and continues
- The lecturer is suspended permanently and can continue only after a new hiring process
I’m not saying the local institution selected option 3!
