In order to ensure and further develop the quality of our courses, various courses are evaluated each semester. The relevant courses are selected by the Dean of Studies in accordance with the criteria set out in the Landshut University of Applied Sciences evaluation regulations.

The online evaluation takes place in the middle of the semester or, in the case of block courses, in the middle of the seminar. The procedure is as follows:

You will receive the relevant information for your course from Sylvia Schmiedel (Study Programmes) or Katharina Brunnbauer (Studium Generale and Languages) by e-mail, stating that the survey has been created and opened for your seminar. Students will automatically receive a link to the online survey by e-mail. (You will find a corresponding guideline on the homepage of the Faculty IDS under Downloads).

The evaluation of your course serves the purpose of quality assurance in the area of teaching. You will receive feedback on the progress and acceptance of your course and can make changes if necessary and, where possible, adapt the course to the students' wishes. In addition to this formalised evaluation, it is advisable to obtain (and give) verbal feedback from students during the course when the opportunity arises in order to ensure that the learning process is satisfactory for everyone involved.

Our Dean of Studies, Prof Dr Jörg, is available to answer any questions you may have regarding the content of the course. If you have any questions about the formal evaluation process, please contact Sylvia Schmiedel (degree programmes) or Katharina Brunnbauer (general studies and languages).
