Teaching evaluation by students

Why ?

The CSE (Centre for Teaching and Learning) at UNIL suggests that the teacher/s ask the student/s to assess their courses with the aim of testing the student's / students' learning experience.
This approach is in line with a desire to enhance teaching in the same way as research at UNIL.

The evaluation of teaching is the individual responsibility of the teachers. In this context, we would like to inform you of the recent implementation of Directive 3.22 is effective from the beginning of the 2021-22 academic year, and invite you to pay particular attention to article 7: each member of the teaching staff must ensure that all the teaching for which he or she is responsible is subject to an EEE (evaluation of the course by students) at least once within a period of 3 years, subject to the periodicity provided for by his or her status.

Teachers are not obliged to include the results of the evaluation of their courses in their self-evaluation report (with the exception of conditional tenure-track Assistant Professors). Instead, they must include their analysis of the results of the evaluation (what is working well, what is working less well, what is being done to consolidate/improve the situation, which is communicated to the student/s).

How ?

There are two different types of evaluations:

  • Programme evaluations (or part of programmes designed to evaluate a set of courses are carried out by the School of Biology).
  • Individual evaluations concerning a course and a teacher in particular are carried out by the Centre for Teaching and Learning.
