Course evaluation at the Department of Mathematics
Department of Mathematics wishes to evaluate both the form and the content of its courses continuously. The evaluation takes place during the semester. The lecturer and the students should find a suitable method of evaluation together. At the beginning of the semester approximately 1+n/60 (where n denotes the number of student taking the course) student representatives are elected to represent the students taking the course. The lecturer publishes the student representatives' e-mail addresses on the course's semester web page.
The lecturer and the student representatives are expected to cooperate in deciding how the course evaluation should be carried out. A few possible evaluation methods are monthly lunches and a questionnaire to be filled out by the students. The lecturer and the student representatives have a common responsibility to conduct the evaluation, and the lecturer is also responsible for the follow-up of the evaluation.
Sometimes a final evaluation is also carried out at the end of the semester, typically for courses given for the first time.
For lecturers: One of the pdfs in the right margin could be presented on the first lecture. These documents are also available as overhead sheets in the reception on 7th floor.
