Quality Meetings (Q-Meetings)

Description

Quality Meetings are meetings between all relevant stakeholders of a study program, at which information is shared about quality-relevant issues relating to education and teaching, and development goals and measures are identified. The results are documented in a Quality Meeting Summary, which then serves as the basis for reviewing whether the objectives have been achieved in the Q-Meeting of the following year.

Purpose

The objectives of the Quality Meetings are dialog and reflection on the quality of a study program, identification of the need for action, and agreement on development measures to improve the quality of study programs.

Frequency / Timeline

The Quality Meetings should generally be held once a year. It is possible to depart from this interval in exceptional cases.

User groups

  • Instructors and students may suggest topics for discussion and participate in the Quality Meetings.
  • Study program directors may suggest topics for discussion and participate in the Quality Meetings. They are also responsible for planning, implementation and documentation of the Quality Meetings.
  • Vice Dean of Studies may suggest topics for discussion and participate in the Quality Meetings (if possible).

Synergies

Information from the central quality tools (Course/Module Evaluations, Monitoring Education & Teaching, and Graduate Survey) can be used as a basis for the Quality Meetings. The Quality Meeting Summaries from the last four years are then incorporated into the Education Quality Report of the study programs for the faculty leadership teams.
