The survey "Teaching and Learning in the Faculty of Technology"

Umfrage Beispiel

An online survey among lecturers and students was conducted in SS 2012. Motivation for this survey was the request to define the faculty‘s special requirements for a virtual learning environment. This will be installed as project „studentischer Arbeitsplatz“ within BIS 3.0. Furthermore the survey provides insights in the teaching and learning culture of the faculty.



Summary of results

The most important wish of the students is that all information regarding courses is offered in a central system and that this is consequently updated, especially the „Inhalt/Kommentar“-field of courses. The lecturers who nowadays determine the methods of communicating themselves are afraid of an increasing workload by being obliged to use new central systems. Nevertheless half to a third of the lecturers consider special tools as helpful.
