Providers were asked: How well are colleges using data to measure faculty performance, and what related areas need the most improvements?
“Colleges will typically show the faculty how their scores compare to others at the school, usually those in the same department. But they rarely ask the instructors how they plan to improve any low scores they've earned or coach them how to do so. Closing this feedback loop will improve the students' experience.”

Why are metaphors useful? Language is central to our humanity, and the language we use defines how we see ourselves, others and the world. If we see arguments as war we respond very differently than if we see them as dance. Over the centuries, metaphors have been used in daily language and thought (Lakoff and Johnson, 2003) providing us with insights about complex phenomena and defining what we see how we behave, and the cultures we shape.
