Teaching Evaluation at BCI

Woman sitting in front of her laptop © apid​/​

Teaching evaluation is one of the most important elements of quality assurance in teaching.
All compulsory courses of the faculty are evaluated, as well as almost all elective courses.

The legal basis is regulated in the Regulations for Quality Management in Teaching and Learning at the Technische Universität Dortmund of 27.12.2019 and the Evaluation Regulations of the Faculty of Bio- and Chemical Engineering.  

Procedure of the teaching evaluation

The teaching evaluation takes place online. Towards the end of the semester, all students are given the opportunity to complete an online questionnaire. A sample questionnaire for lectures can be found here. Special questionnaires are available for the evaluation of the design project, the internships or the project work PEP in the first semester.

Publication of the results

The results of the teaching evaluation are sent in summary form by mail to all students and scientists of the faculty. Once a semester, the advisory board deals with the results of the teaching evaluation. It holds discussions with teachers whose evaluation results are not satisfactory. The advisory board can also recommend general measures, e.g. for the further training of teachers.

The faculty's teaching prize is awarded among the best courses. The BCI student council decides on the award.
