Piloting phase has two steps:
- HowUTeach questionaire the teachers of the pilot programmes or majors will answer the questionaire and receive individual feedback based on their answeres. This mechanism encourages and improves self-evaluation within the respondent’s field of work. Feedback includes descriptions of different teaching dimensions as well as ideas on how to develop and improve teaching practices and teaching-related wellbeing. Dimensions of HowUTeach instrument include: teaching related wellbeing, experiences of work environment, integration of teaching and research and approached to teaching.
- In the facilitetad workshops the team of teachers will reflect the feedback together to realize the collaborative strengths in your academic community and to jointly analyze the key development points to ensure the best possible teaching and learning experiences. Workshops will be facilitated by members of Oasis of Radical Wellbeing project team.
Further steps follow the needs of the degree programme.
Three to four programmes or majors from all Aalto fields will be participating in the piloting phase during the academic year 2022-2023.
