Developing Academics and Teaching Through Evaluation

Measuring the quality of academics and teaching at Technische Universität Berlin

A crucial factor in a university’s success is the quality of its teaching and academics. Regular evaluation ensures not only high quality but also provides an opportunity to respond effectively to critical developing trends. How satisfied are students with their courses and general study conditions? How would graduates assess their studies in retrospect? And how about the university’s instructors? Are we as Technische Universität Berlin meeting the aims we set out in our Mission Statement for Teaching?

In addition to internal surveys, TU Berlin’s Quality Management has developed two special procedures to evaluate degree programs: the teaching conference and degree program evaluation, both used in combination with the results of the internal surveys. At faculty level, a quality dialog is conducted every two years to more closely examine strategic topics and all of the faculty’s study offers.

Instructor surveys

In the past, our students were the focus of surveys and evaluations regarding teaching. However, instructors must also be given an opportunity to share their experience. What conditions make for good teaching? What challenges do instructors face?
