Teaching at a Distance: Do Faculty Evaluations Differ by Extension Campus Sites?

Description

With the advent of extension campuses in medical education, students experience live, synchronous learning activities. Instructors teach these individual activities primarily from one site, while students at extension sites watch and participate from a distance. We found that student evaluations of teaching differed by student campus location, with distant students rating faculty significantly lower than on-site students. This presents a possible faculty-independent variable in regards to student evaluations of teaching effectiveness.
