thank a teacher 2013


Have you ever wanted to tell a UCA teacher how much you appreciate his or her learning assistance?  Unfortunately, teachers rarely receive such information because students are unsure how to provide it.

Now the Instructional Development Center offers “Thank-A-Teacher” as a way to provide instructional feedback to faculty. “Thank-a-Teacher” is an option for students to express their appreciation to UCA faculty.  Students will submit the online form (anonymously or not).  The IDC will send a letter of acknowledgement to the faculty member at the beginning of the following semester.

This service is not intended to replace student evaluations but to supplement the process by encouraging students to show individual appreciation to faculty. Students’ evaluation of courses will occur during the last few weeks of each semester through the MyUCA portal under the “Evals” tab.  Evaluation results are made available to faculty two weeks after grades are posted.  “Thank-A-Teacher” results will be provided to faculty the week classes begin next semester.   “Thank-A-Teacher” is available at the end of each semester for student use.
