  • Reflections on the use of the teaching assessment handbooks at the UPC/BarcelonaTech University
    It has been five years since the UPC (BarcelonaTech University) began to assess teaching by staff at the university according to the teaching handbook. The handbook was developed according to the guidelines laid down by AQU, approved by the university's Governing Council and subsequently endorsed by the Agency. Up until the present time, the handbook has been used in the assessment of approximately 1,500 applications. The five special review panels involved in this process are currently being renewed and reaccredited. The teaching assessment handbook is also being updated to include the solution to various situations that were unforeseen and that have arisen over the past five years, including the introduction of new EHEA qualifications with the new unit measurements for teaching (ECTS credits), new contractual teaching positions, etc. Now is therefore a good time to reflect on its introduction, use and results.
