In the Faculty of Public Health, communicative exchanges and feedback between students and teaching staff are characterized by a culture of mutual appreciation and respect. It is of great concern to all members of the Faculty as well as to students to maintain and further develop this culture of communication based on trust. Against this background, course evaluation is understood not as an assessment by teaching staff but rather as a check on the extent to which the common teaching and learning goals have been achieved. These initial considerations are guiding elements in the debate on and further development of the existing approach to evaluation within the Faculty’s decentralized system of quality management. Course evaluation, which is the focus here, is a fundamental component of the evaluation and further development of the degree programs, but focuses on the course-related teaching and learning objectives and the interaction between teaching staff and students.

Against this background, the Faculty's approach to evaluation was developed with the collaboration of all status groups.
