The faculty regularly exchange information on quality assurance and quality enhancement with departments and libraries through annual quality discussions about first-, second- and third cycle education.
The quality discussions are both follow-ups and forward-looking. The aim is to capture areas in need of development and improvement and to identify any required measures, follow up results from education evaluations and call attention to examples of best practice and disseminate these within the faculty.
The faculty management, education administrators and a student representative from the Social Sciences students’ union visit all departments (head of department, director of studies, and local student representative) and libraries every autumn.
The discussions are based on both thematic and follow-up issues and partly build on pre-submitted material from the departments.
Examples of issue areas in recent years:
- work on course evaluations and course evaluation reports
- preparations for study programme evaluations
- integration of international students in the Swedish academic system
- integration of information management in courses and how this affects the quality of education and the students’ learning.
