Quality DevelopmentInstruments and Reporting Systems
In order to achieve the quality assurance and development goals for Student Affairs and Teaching, significant information on quality aspects is gained using various instruments.
The results are entered into reporting systems, which contain all important information and simultaneously display the relevant aspects for various target groups as concisely as possible. Heidelberg University's evaluation regulations form the legal framework for the implementation of these goals.
Interdisciplinary course surveys (DE)
The idea behind systematic course surveys is to ensure and improve the quality of teaching in the various courses. An essential component is the use of survey results by teaching staff for the development of their courses.
Interdisciplinary subject surveys (DE)
Subject surveys are designed to find out students’ opinions on the current study environment. This serves the identification of strengths and areas of improvement in the respective departments and thus the implementation of appropriate measures.
Teaching capacity tool (DE)
The teaching capacity tool is an Excel-based tool, which facilitates the identification of staff shortages and solutions based on the teaching capacity review.
Monitoring of key performance indicators (KPIs) (DE)
Aside from the numbers and data on budgeting and performance-oriented fund allocation which Heidelberg University's decentralised units regularly receive in the budget leaflets, quality-related key performance indicators (KPIs) are also regularly compiled for heiQUALITY.
Subject Enquiries (DE)
Some of the relevant and central issues related to the assessment of quality in Student Affairs and Teaching cannot be addressed with the help of student surveys or quantitative analyses. These aspects are included in a short Subject Enquiry.
