Registration meeting Quality agreements 

The UT has put effort in increasing the quality of its education which was rewarded with the predicate best technical university. This improvement could not have been realized without the combined effort of students, teachers, and the organization as a whole.

Our new government also underlines the importance of good education. In order to assure education of good quality they issued that quality agreements between universities and the ministry are to be made. The UT has been given the responsibility to come up with its own qualitative focus points. This opportunity will be used to define ambitions concerning quality of education in dialog with the academic community and jointly further improve the quality of our education.

We would like to invite you to join the first meeting on 26th of April where we will discuss:

  • The process of how, together, we will work towards broadly supported quality agreements. A topic that needs to be discussed in this respect is good ways of student and teacher engagement in education improvement cycles (PDCA) in general and specifically in developing quality agreements.
  • Initial thoughts on what profiling strengths and points of attention of the UT are in relation to the themes addressed by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (e.g. Intensity of Education and Differentiation in Education).  With your help this meeting should result in a clear starting point which will be used to further develop these quality agreements. The meeting is jointly hosted by the Chair of the University Council and the Rector Magnificus. Programme directors and members of the university’s education committee (UC-OW) are invited to this meeting. Also Programme Committees, Faculty Boards and the University Councils are most welcome to participate in this meeting and preferably be present with at least a student and staff member per council.

Frans van Vught, who was the chairman of the Higher Education and Research Review Committee and also the former rector and chairman of the UT, will discuss ways to make quality of education explicit and measurable. Experiences and lessons learned from the performance agreements that are valuable for the upcoming quality agreements will be shared.
