Study Environment Evaluation
The Act on the Educational Environment of Pupils and Students
According to the Act on the Educational Environment of Pupils and Students, all students at Danish universities are entitled to a good educational environment meaning the education takes place in a safe and sound way. The educational environment at schools and educational institutions is meant to improve the participants’ possibilities of development and learning and shall thus include the psychological and aesthetic aspect of the educational environment.
How do we work with study and educational environment at the IT University?
At the IT University, we have worked dedicated on mapping the problems in the educational environment.
Since autumn 2011 we have worked to establish a suitable study environment organization, and we have established an ad hoc working group (The UMV Group). This group includes representatives from the students (according to educational law called education representatives) and our study programme management.
During the spring of 2012 we have conducted an educational environment evaluation (UMV). The evaluation was carried out in week 5 and 6, and handled by an external consultant.
The consultant made a report and a draft of an plan of action to the UMV group. The UMV group then has the responsibility to follow up on the results and implement changes. The group will regularly inform students about results and actions. You can read which aspects are evaluated, the entire report, and plan of action on this wiki.
The purpose of the Evaluation
The purpose of the evaluation is to make visible where the educational environment can be improved.
At the IT-University the Study Administration coordinates the evaluation - firstname.lastname@example.org
The students are represented in the process by two educational environment representatives who are appointed by the political student organization StupIT.
