Feedback with Shift!

Shift! provides you with a qualitative feedback format for teaching.

Teachers and students enter into a dialogue on the teaching-learning situation in a course with the support of an external moderator, give each other feedback and take joint responsibility for successful teaching and learning. Shift! creates an opportunity for students and teachers to communicate directly about the conditions for success in a course. This supports both a change of perspective and transparency regarding goals and resources.

Shift! can be used sensibly in situations where teachers and students

  • want to give or receive feedback on their concrete teaching or learning behaviour,
  • want to stimulate an open discourse and reflect on themselves and the situation,
  • want to strengthen the teaching-learning relationship between teachers and students
  • want to discuss and solve conflicts

We offer Shift! online via Zoom or in a presence format.

Shift! is an additional offer to the mainly quantificational course evaluation via questionnaire (LVE). The requirements of the evaluation regulations and quality assurance remain unchanged. Participation is voluntary and free of charge.

Registration for the Summer Semester 2021

We recommend that you conduct Shift! in the middle of the semester so that you can implement the ideas discussed during the event.

If you are interested in external moderation, teachers as well as students can register their desire for a Shift! Moderation - if possible - until 19.04.2021 at

Please provide us with the following information: the title of your event, the approximate group size, the language and your preferred date for Shift! in your event.

Please register early, as the available capacities are limited. We will contact you as soon as possible.

Procedure: Feedback with Shift!


After registering for the format, one of our moderators will contact the teacher and make an appointment for a short preliminary talk to clarify your concerns and expectations.

At the same time, the student moderator gives the students the opportunity to bring their concerns for the Shift! session into the planning.


The feedback session takes about 45-60 minutes. Our  team of moderators usually consists of a tandem of a regular and  a student staff member from teaching service or Team Q.

The process is divided into four sections:

  1. Presentation of the qualitative feedback format Shift!
  2. Processing of the previously agreed guiding questions in small groups
  3. Discussion in the plenum
  4. Joint agreement on further cooperation and development of the course.
