Quality of teaching and instruction

Executive Summary:
The evaluations from the second semester of 2022 present an optimistic trend in the quality of teaching and instruction. Faculty members have been instrumental in elevating the educational experience, reflecting their commitment and innovation. Yet, while many students expressed satisfaction, some areas still require enhancements to achieve a universally excellent instructional experience.

The following graph shows the evolution of the perceived quality of teaching, with a score over 0 meaning a majority of positive comments in the feedback data:

Positive Developments:

Diverse Teaching Methods: Students expressed appreciation for the variety in teaching methods – from traditional lectures to group discussions and hands-on projects.

Use of Technology: The integration of technology into teaching, including online resources, multimedia presentations, and interactive platforms, has been beneficial for the learning process.

Open to Feedback: Faculty members have shown a willingness to adjust their teaching methods based on student feedback, indicating adaptability and a commitment to continuous improvement.

Student Engagement: Many courses have seen increased student participation due to interactive sessions, case studies, and real-world problem-solving exercises.

Areas of Concern:

Variability in Teaching Quality: While many faculty members received praise, some instructors were perceived as less prepared or less effective in their delivery.

Limited Practical Applications: Some courses, especially theoretical ones, lacked practical exercises or real-world applications, leading students to question the applicability of their learning.

Reliance on Outdated Resources: A few courses were noted to still depend on outdated textbooks or materials, which can impede the relevance of the instruction.

Limited Use of Student-centric Methods: In certain courses, there was a call for more student-centric approaches, like flipped classrooms or peer teaching, to diversify learning experiences.


Implement a mentorship or peer review system where experienced faculty can guide and share best practices with newer or less-effective instructors.

Integrate more real-world examples, guest lectures, and practical exercises into the curriculum to bridge the gap between theory and application.

Regularly audit and update course materials to ensure students have access to the latest and most relevant resources.

Explore and train faculty in diverse instructional methodologies, ensuring a mix of traditional and student-centered approaches for a comprehensive learning experience.

In conclusion, while there has been commendable growth in the realm of teaching and instruction, continuous introspection and refinement are essential. Adopting a student-centric, feedback-driven approach will fortify the university's commitment to academic excellence.
