Quality assurance and enhancement
The main responsibility for quality assurance and enhancement in the University’s study programmes and courses lies with each faculty. The benchmark for quality enhancement is in the students’ and doctoral students’ learning. Quality assurance and enhancement is designed so that it is coordinated with, and provides documentation for, participation in external evaluation systems, both nationally and internationally.
The University-wide Education Board has the overall responsibility for quality in education at Lund University. The Education Board adopted a plan of operations for 2014–2016, which regulates the overall quality assurance and enhancement efforts.
The Quality and Evaluation office, at the Student Affairs division, offers advice and support on quality assurance in education, and develops methods and tools within the field. The office is also responsible for the quality enhancement network at Lund University, consisting of the different faculties’ quality assurance coordinators.
Courses in teaching and learning in higher education are conducted in several parts of Lund University. The responsibility lies with the faculties, and a number of them have their own units for higher education teacher training. The University also has a Division for Higher Education Development which offers University-wide courses in teaching and learning in higher education.
