Teaching Evaluation Committee SCITEC

The Teaching Evaluation Committee (SCITEC), is responsible for the evaluation of teaching at the School of Science. Its aim is to help departments in the Tenure and Lecturer Track recruitment processes and later in evaluations leading to promoted positions, focusing in particular in assessing the teaching competence of a person.

SCITEC has an independent role in the evaluation of teaching competence. It draws up an independent statement on the candidate’s teaching competence on the basis of which the evaluated teacher is able to see e.g. which skills they need to improve. The statement is delivered to TT committees of the department, the school (and the university). Through the process teachers may become more aware of their teaching and identify their strengths and weaknesses. SCITEC also gives the applicants a range of recommendations, such as pedagogical training or testing different teaching methods.

The committee has representation from all the departments of the School; at a minimum there are members from each discipline, educational developer and student members trained to evaluate teaching.
