The Quality Management Board in FB 11 (KomQ)
The joint central body responsible for matters concerning quality in FB 11 – both subject-specific as well as cross-departmental – is the Quality Management Board in FB 11 (KomQ). The QM Board, which was set up by the Faculty Council in 2009, meets on a regular basis throughout the semester with the participation of all study programs and status groups.
Objectives pursued by KomQ
KomQ supports FB 11 in the building of Faculty-wide system of quality management. It conceptualizes suitable measures of quality assurance for the study programs and monitors their implementation and application.
Themes addressed by KomQ
The QM Board addresses the various different aspects of quality assurance related to studies and education. Typical subjects are, for instance, initiation of the semester summit meeting /round table, compilation of an information sheet for adjunct lecturers and newly appointed members of the teaching faculty and measures to project the external image of study programs, composition of a code of ethics for student research work, matters surrounding the award of CP in the area of General Studies as well as measures to evaluate the quality of teaching, and in particular any pressing matters that impact on students.
Beside the abovementioned topics, in 2015 and 2016 the KomQ compiled the “Guidelines for Quality Management in Studies and Education in Faculty 11” (see column on the right), which were adopted by the Faculty Council on 11.05.2016.
It also regularly compiles reports on meetings of the University’s Deans, implementation of the ForstA project in FB 11, and evaluation measures implemented by the Studienzentrum.
