Teaching Analysis Poll (TAP)

Qualitative feedback from students for lecturers at the HSG

The Competence Center for Educational Development And Research in Higher Education (CEDAR) at thr IWP-HSG and the Office for Quality Development at the HSG (QE) have been offering lecturers at the HSG Teaching Analysis Polls (TAPs) since 2016. This is a qualitative, participatory feedback method that lecturers can use voluntarily during the semester to find out from their students (1) what makes their learning possible and (2) what makes it more difficult. In addition, (3) the specific opportunities for improvement identified can be integrated directly into teaching.

TAPs are conducted exclusively at the request of lecturers and are intended purely as a feedback tool.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • TAP gives you feedback on your teaching during the semester so that suggestions for changes can be implemented directly in the course.
  • TAP helps to facilitate dialogue between you and your students about teaching and learning in the course, so that mutual understanding and reflection can be promoted.
