Do you know about the Quality Agreements? »
A while back, the Dutch study grant was replaced by a loan. It was decided that all money that became available due to the disappearance of the study grant has to be spend on education. The programme wants to actively involve students for input and asked Inter-Actief for help!
Based on last year’s input three examples of points of focus for coming years are: improve climate control of the Educafé, more rooms in EEMCS buildings for small project groups, expanding lecture recording facilities including metadata and editing.
In this survey, you can write down as many ideas as you can on how to improve the quality of your education. For example, more power sockets or better TA training. Once a decent amount of feedback has been gathered, there will be a second survey where you can vote on your favourite suggestions!
The survey can be found on the following URL: https://ictsv.nl/QA-survey
