Dialogues: An Interdisciplinary Journal of English Language Teaching and Research has published its inaugural issue. Included is an article written by Dr. Valerie Sartor (Assistant Professor of Instruction, Curricular and Instructional Studies) entitled "Power Swings: From Authoritarian to Collaborative Teaching Assessments."
The article, aimed at both the observer and the observed, presents the need for compassionate collaborative assessment strategies. By building rapport between teachers and observers, assessments are viewed positively and genuine changes in teaching can occur.
