Working Group Evaluation of Studies & Teaching
The Working Group, under the chairmanship of the Vice-Rector for Teaching and Studies, serves as a platform for central-decentral exchange among actors in charge of evaluation and quality management of studies and teaching. The aim of the Working Group is to discuss and define the goals, standards, responsibilities and processes on a cross-faculty basis, in order to formulate common strategies for the evaluation of studies and teaching.
The exchange is organized and coordinated by the Evaluation of Studies and Teaching | Higher Education Research institute (contact persons: Dr. Mareike Landmann, Raphael Schmatz). Participants include the offices of deans, the quality and evaluation representatives as well as other faculty staff members in the field of quality management and evaluation of studies and teaching. Perspectively, central institutions should also participate in the work of the Working Group.
Cooperation and Support
We are pleased to support other entities at the University of Cologne as part of our work. If you require support in finding answers to any (research-based) questions concerning studies and teaching or already have project ideas for a collaborative partnership, we look forward to hearing from you.
We are also happy to advise you on the conceptualisation of surveys and the choice of survey design for your survey. Depending on the project in question, we will support you in the development of survey instruments, for example (online) questionnaires, and the data-collection process as well as giving advice on data-analysis and presentation of results. In addition, we offer the possibility to use EvaSys (a software for evaluations) which can be obtained with the campus license.
We are curious to hear about your research interests and project ideas.
