Professional Development and Training of Teachers
The Act on Quality Assurance and numerous guidelines on teaching excellence require from higher education institutions to organise seminars and workshops periodically to improve the quality of the teaching process, and university and other higher education teachers to attend seminars for the development and improvement of teaching competences. To this end, Bernays’ Centre for Quality Assurance, in cooperation with the Vice Dean for Academic Affairs, organises professional development and training for academic and non-academic staff. Every academic year, at least two such training programmes are conducted on a variety of topics related to the higher education system. Among them, the most prominent programmes were on the topic of learning outcomes, teaching methods, evaluation methods for students and their achievements, and supervision of final papers and master’s theses. Lectures are held by experts and prominent university professors.
