I think the problem is defining what is good teaching. From a small sample, it is clear to me that substance of a course is unrelated to teaching evaluations. Some professors who work hardest and teach the most get bad evaluations, while relative slackers do well.

I would say the professor's personality and communicative skill is pretty central to these evaluations. But maybe that's a big part of good teaching. Having a personality that students like and the ability to present the material in an interesting manner.
