Within the study Chemical Science and Engineering (CSE) the education is evaluated in several ways. In this evaluation the opinion of every student is taken in high regard, so that the study can continuously be improved. Both the educational organisation and Alembic offer these evaluations. Below this general introduction, several institutions that are connected to the evaluation of our education are explained.
The ‘Quality Assurence Committee‘, previously know as the ‘Onderwijs Kwalitiet Commissie‘ consists of the coordinator of quality control from the cluster Science & Technology Renilde Bonthuis-van Seters, Erna Brus and a couple of students. This committee asks the students for their input on the quality of their education in three ways;
- Student panel interviews
- OKC-web evaluations
- Teacher panel interviews
These evaluations take place for each quartile. In the student panel interviews, students can give their opinion on, for example, their subjects, the guidance, the exams and the facilities. Next to that, students can provide their opinion in web evaluations. Finally, students and teachers are invited to the teacher panel interviews. The teachers can ask for an explanation to the issues found in the earlier evaluations and the students have another chance to deliver input on the quality of their education.
Het Thematisch Overleg Scheikundig Technologen in Spé (TOSTIS) (roughly translated: Thematic Consultation Future Chemical Engineers) is organized by the Educational Committee halfway every quartile. A guest speaker is invited to hold a educational related presentation during a lunch break. As the name suggests, the EduCo also delivers delicious free toastis to everyone present. The see the other activities of the EduCo, view them in the committee section under “association”.
