The universities discuss the impact of teaching assessment handbooks

Around sixty participants, including vice-rectors, academic managers and students from Catalan universities participated in the workshop, "Reaccreditation of the teaching assessment handbooks used by public universities in Catalonia", organised by AQU Catalunya on 16 April. The objective of the workshop was to assess the efficacy and impact of the handbooks in relation to their subsequent accreditation, bearing in mind the need for integration with the AUDIT and DOCENTIA programmes and the VSMA framework.

The workshop was divided up into three parts:

The efficacy of the teaching assessment handbooks and how they fit into the VSMA framework. AQU Catalunya gave an overview of the use of the handbooks from the time when they were introduced in 2003 and also presented the results of the opinion poll (survey) on the teaching assessment process of the main actors involved (vice-rectors, review panels, academic managers and students).
