Today, the Development Council held a meeting at Kemicentrum, hosted by the Faculty of Science. Olle Söderman and Ina Alexandersson gave a presentation of the Science Faculty’s undergraduate handbook, which is constructed in SharePoint. There were many positive comments from members of the Development Council. Fronesis sub-projects III and IV gave status reports. Head of Evaluation Tina Josefsson talked about Högskoleverket’s kick-off meeting ahead of the quality evaluations in 2011. There was a lot of discussion on how the goals for the evaluation are selected and how they are specified. The structure of quality dialogues was also presented. We tested these with some faculties last autumn, with good results, and now we will have quality dialogues with all faculties this autumn.
Experiences from barometers at the Faculty of Science and the alumni report from the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts were presented by the respective faculty representatives. Head of Planning Susanne Wallmark went through resource allocation ahead of the upcoming budget discussions with the faculties; a new aspect is that we are trying to include planning for the coming years rather than only focusing on next year.
A consultation paper on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) is currently with the faculties. It is important that Lund responds to this consultation in a good and well thought-out manner. I would like to encourage everyone to read the consultation paper carefully, discuss it and send the faculties’ responses to Tarmo Haavisto. Eva Wiberg from the Faculties of Humanities and Theology has worked on the issue as a national Bologna expert and will be helping us in the handling of the consultation.
