Self-Assessment of the University Teaching Staff Functions
Duarte Clemente, Mariana Vilela; Ferrándiz-Vindel, Isabel-María
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v5 n5 p367-372 2012
The Higher Education institutions should offer excellence teaching and qualification opportunities for the university teaching staff. La Facultad Integrada de Pernambuco (FACIPE) (the Integrated School of Pernambuco) in Brazil, following the global trend, has been involved in implementing changes to help improve the quality of education in our universities. The aim of this paper is to show how the teachers themselves, the core of this change, perceive their continuing training and how it can help in their upgrade process as a university lecturer. Thus, we use the teaching staff self-assessment as a tool to develop a FACIPE teaching staff profile and a strategy to foster self-reflection to discover and identify the "real" needs for the Comisión Propia de Evaluación (CPA) (The Own Commission of Assessment) to be able to arrange Continuing Education seminars, courses and / or workshops.
