Developing and revising academic programs is a daunting task that is often made more challenging when we also try to ensure their pedagogical merit. There is a constant clash between formal requirements and institutional frameworks, goals, content, courses, and exams. Trying to reconcile all of these different elements can often be uniquely challenging.
The Center for Teaching and Learning provides hands-on support for the development and cultivation of quality programs for all faculties and departments at Universität Regensburg.
For the development of a new program or for the revision of an existing one, it is essential to define its structure, contents, and goals.
Another important step when it comes to program development is to define its pedagogical approach.
The process of developing a new program and coming up with an appropriate pedagogical approach involves a lot of collaboration from everyone involved.
We provide quality assurance tools to all of Universität Regensburg’s faculties and departments to help ensure and maintain excellence in teaching and learning. Our work emphasizes:
• tools for quantitative course evaluation
• the implementation of qualitative course evaluation based on Teaching Analysis Polls
For more tips and strategies for the development of programs at UR, or if you are looking for someone to lead internal workshops on module development, don’t hesitate to reach out the team at the Center.
