Course assessment

Provođenje sveučilišnih anketa o nastavnicima (pristup prema studentima, transparentnost kriterija, motivacija na
izvršavanje aktivnosti, jasnoća izlaganja, i sl.). Provođenje fakultetskih anketa o predmetima (nakon položenog predmeta
samoevaluacija studenata o usvojenim ishodima učenja, te o opterećenosti u usporedbi s ECTS-ima aktivnosti i predmeta
u cjelini).
