Feedback Instruments

In the dialogue between teachers and students and through their mutual feedback, decisive impulses for the further development of studies and teaching arise. Taking responsibility for one's own studies and the willingness to engage with the ideas and perspectives of others for one's own teaching are the hallmarks of an active and progressive university community. At Leuphana, various formats are available for discourse. QM instruments ensure that ideas and results flow into the improvement of courses, modules, study programmes and the framework conditions.

Leuphana University's Course Evaluation currently includes various internal university surveys of students and lecturers on the quality of studies and teaching as well as qualitative feedback formats. The Leuphana Teaching Evaluation (LEva) team will be happy to advise you on these feedback formats. It designs the surveys, conducts them, and makes the evaluations available to the clients. Aggregated data from the surveys are processed for internal accreditations and the Quality Circles.

At the level of the course, both the questionnaire-based instrument of Course Evaluation (LVE) and the qualitative feedback format Shift! are used. In addition, students, graduates and alumni are surveyed about their studies at regular intervals (System Surveys); the focus here is on entire study programmes and the general conditions of the study programme.

Quality Circles usually take place annually within the framework of the study programmes. Here, those responsible for the programme, students and lecturers discuss conditions and challenges of the study programme together - also based on aggregated data from the teaching evaluation - and agree on measures for quality development. The implementation of the measures is reviewed at the next Quality Circle and considered in the internal review process for the (Re-)Accreditation of the study programmes.
