Teaching Analysis Poll (TAP)

The Teaching Analysis Poll (TAP) enables lecturers to receive feedback from their students concerning the processes of teaching and learning in their courses. As the TAP takes place midterm, it provides the opportunity to identify aspects for improvement and to initiate potential ideas for change. The TAP can therefore be considered as a qualitative supplement to the “classic” evaluation of university courses. Of course, it is optional for lecturers as well as their students to participate.

Procedure of the Teaching Analysis Poll
On the day of the TAP, lecturers will finish their lecture 30 minutes earlier than usual and hand over to a moderator of Campus in Dialogue. In what follows, the students will discuss the learning process in their course, focusing on the following questions:

  • What aspects of this course help you learn?
  • What aspects of this course impede your learning?
  • What suggestions do you have for the impedimental aspects and beyond?

Finally, the aspects that represent the majority opinion will be determined. In a separate appointment shortly after, the moderator will pass the documented results on to the lecturers.

Classic TAP or b-TAP?
Depending on the number of students in a course, we will suggest a classic TAP or a TAP for bigger courses (big TAP, abbreviated as b-TAP).


To be suited for a TAP, courses should be regular and not too „blocked“, so that the lecturers have the opportunity as well as enough time to react to the results of the TAP after receiving their feedback.
