Teaching quality

Quality Assurance is an indispensable process that involves all those who work in the University in which each individual's progress benefits the entire University and stimulates the healthy confrontation to which it is necessary to strive in order to make the social role played by the University effective and concrete.
Quality Assurance means defining quality policies in line and synergy with the University's strategic directions and reliable and robust procedures through which the governing bodies can implement them; implementing activities to ensure effectiveness and efficiency in all the University's internal processes, first and foremost in the service of the quality of education and research; creating awareness in all those who work in the University so that everyone's tasks are carried out competently and promptly, the services provided are effective, and a record is kept of what has been done to monitor and measure results.

Student Opinion Survey Questionaire (OPIS)

The student opinion survey questionnaire (OPIS) is a tool designed to detect student opinion with a view to improving teaching, quality and the organisation of degree courses and is an integral part of the evaluation system. For students, it is an important opportunity to make their voice heard and actively participate in the life of their degree course, as a guarantee of better Quality Assurance: this is why the University recommends that it be filled in punctually and accurately.

More information on the OPIS questionnaires can be found on the following page: https://www.unipr.it/didattica/i-corsi-di-studio/compilazione-del-quest…

Work scheduling and implementation deadlines for initiatives

The quality assurance of the degree course consists in the implementation of the quality assurance model proposed and coordinated by the Quality Presidium and in the planning and implementation of corrective actions, the effectiveness of which is assessed annually by analysing the performance of the indicators in the SMA and, in depth, periodically in the RRC.
Corrective actions under the control of the Department and/or the degree course are planned according to the organisational and management arrangements of the Department and/or the degree course and are coordinated and monitored by the Quality Assurance Manager.
The degree course appoints an internal Review Group (GR) whose activities are organised as follows:
- annually drafts the SUA-CdS for the following academic year; - annually drafts the SUA-CdS for the following academic year; - periodically verifies the status of implementation of the improvement measures proposed in the RRC and assesses the overall progress of students' careers, based on the data provided by ANVUR.
The general planning of quality assurance activities leads to daily contact with student representatives, tutors, professors/instructors and staff in the Academic office and central offices. In correspondence with deadlines for documents or fulfilments (review, SUA form, beginning and end of semesters, examination and graduation sessions), activities intensify and take the form of drafting texts or collecting information..
