Teaching evaluation

2.5.1 Teaching evaluation

Directive concerning the evaluation and recognition of teaching at the EPFL 7 January 2004, Status as at 13th April 2018 Denise Flury

This directive makes it obligatory for all candidates for teaching posts or all candidates for promotion in teaching at EPFL to draw up a specific dossier concerning their skills and activities in education and teaching.

It then establishes the evaluation of teaching performance by obligatory indicative evaluation (assessment by students of each of their courses each semester) and the in-depth evaluation of the performance of each teaching staff member, which itself constitutes the follow-up to an indicative evaluation that revealed problems. This in-depth evaluation is however also carried out at the request of the teaching staff member who wishes to change or check and improve their teaching performance.
