Notification for the renewal of accreditation for the teaching assessment handbooks used by the public universities in Catalonia

In accordance with the strategy approved during the Workshop on the reaccreditation of the teaching assessment handbooks used by public universities in Catalonia (16/04/2013), AQU Catalunya has endorsed the renewal procedure for the accreditation of the handbooks used by Catalan public universities for teaching assessment. The primary aim of the new accreditation process is to evaluate the functioning and application of the quality assurance processes designed in the teaching assessment handbooks of each university. This evaluation will be based on the principle of transparency, the satisfaction of the agents involved and accountability.

Amongst other things, the process must therefore:

  • Verify the level of visibility of the handbook, its processes and outcomes.
  • Provide proof, in the form of the self-report, of the level of satisfaction of all those involved in the process.
  • Provide information on the outcomes of the model's application.

Public universities in Catalonia with teaching assessment handbooks already accredited may apply through their Rector's Office to AQU's Quality Assurance Commission (CAQ). Applications, together with the supporting documentation, should be sent between 16 September-11 October 2013, inclusive. In addition to the application call, the following documentation must be enclosed:

  • The university's current teaching assessment handbook.
  • The self-evaluation report, according to the specifications given in point 5 of Resolution ECO/1640, 19 July 2013.
  • The proposed version for the new handbook, where applicable.

The body dealing with the renewal of teaching assessment accreditation as set out in the teaching assessment handbooks is AQU's special CEMAI committee. Notification of the granting or denial of the renewal of accreditation must be made to the university's Rector's Office within six months from the time of application. When the result is affirmative, the renewal of accreditation has a five-year validity.
