Evaluations and Quality Assurance in the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences

In 2013, a comprehensive concept for evaluation and quality assurance in teaching (EQL) was adopted in the WiSo Faculty. In addition to the evaluation of courses (LvE) prescribed by the evaluation regulations of the University of Tübingen, this provides for further, innovative evaluation modules at the degree programme level: the degree programme evaluation (SgE) and the round table discussions (RT) with students.

Course Evaluation (LvE)

The Dean's Office carries out an obligatory evaluation of the courses (online in presence surveys) for each department every three semesters. In the summer semester 2023, an evaluation takes place in the School of Business and Economics. The next regular LvE in the Department of Social Sciences is scheduled fort he summer semester 2024. In addition, all events of junior professors, postdoctoral researchers, and junior research group leaders are evaluated centrally by the Dean's Office every semester.

An additional evaluation outside the regular rotation is possible in justified cases, for example in the case of courses that have been newly designed in terms of content or methodology. Please contact the dean of studies of your department.

Evaluation Modules at Course Level: Course Evaluation (SgE) and Round Table Discussions (RT)

In contrast to course evaluations (LvE), which refer to the individual courses, these evaluation modules give students the opportunity to evaluate and reflect on their entire course of study. These include, for example, the following questions: Why did students choose a particular course of study? Does the course meet expectations? Do students feel supported? How could the course of studies be improved?

The third faculty-wide course evaluation takes place in a temporally staggered manner - for each subject adapted to the accreditation schedule - in the academic years 2021/22 and 2022/23. The students of almost all courses of study at the Department of Economic and Social Sciences are asked about their studies.

In the summer semesters 2022 and 2023, the results of the program evaluation are discussed in round table discussions between students and subject representatives. The results are then prepared by the representatives of the study program into overall reports and discussed in the study commissions. These reports provide an important information basis for the further development of the degree programs.

In the subjects of Historical Cultural Anthropology, Political Science and Sociology, in the Methods Centre as well as in the School of Business and Economics, the evaluations have been completed and the overall reports (see Downloads) are available.
