Teaching Conference

Objective and content

Teaching conferences examine the successful implementation of a degree program. They aim to further develop current degree programs (content and management) and are managed by the degree program coordinators. Pursuant to the Quality Management Regulations (QMO), teaching conferences have the following functions:

  • Discussing course evaluation results including workload
  • Discussing the most current valid examination results
  • Sharing experiences from the current academic year
  • Agreeing and updating teaching content
  • Discussing and analyzing further relevant information (e.g. internal degree program alumni surveys, statistics about study progress, duration of studies, graduate retention from central surveys)
  • Proposing ideas to further develop study and examination regulations

The degree program coordinator is responsible for deciding the topics and focus of the teaching conference based on current needs and in accordance with the Quality Management Regulations (QMO). If a degree program evaluation is conducted, recommendations from the Internal Accreditation Committee for the continuous development of the degree program should be discussed and if applicable, implemented within the accreditation period.


  1. Each teaching conference reporting year begins in May.
  2. The responsible office of the University administration provides templates for the relevant reporting year to the faculties and central institute via tubCloud. The templates contain data and key figures from the University’s central study management systems.
  3. The teaching conferences are then conducted at faculty level until April of the following year.
  4. The results of the teaching conferences are recorded in the template for the teaching conference report (LKB).


The report (LKB) documents the results and serves as the foundation for following up on agreed measures.

Aggregated results from a degree program spanning six years play an important role as a stimulus for discussions in the respective degree program evaluation (every six years).

Additionally, aggregated results from all degree programs in a faculty or central institute contribute to identifying overarching topics at University level – such as a lack of (physical) classrooms – for the quality dialog.
