Book recommendation: Fallstricke der Lehrevaluation

INCHER Director Georg Krücken is editor of a new book series "Hochschule und Gesellschaft" at Campus publishers. We strongly recommend the first volume in this series by Tobias Wolbring "Fallstricke der Lehrevaluation. Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der Messbarkeit von Lehrqualität" (pitfalls of higher education evaluation. Possibilities and limits of measurability of teaching quality) which appeared in November2013.

[Translate to englisch:] Cover

In his book, Tobias Wolbring discusses infuences of grades and attractiveness of teachers as well as individual differences in student judgment and selection effects. In addition to the socio-theoretical and methodological insights from these findings, he works out the university policy implications of these pitfalls in the higher education evaluation.

Dr. Tobias Wolbring is Postdoctoral Fellow at the Departement of Geistes-, Sozial- und Staatswissenschaften if the ETH Zürich (Switzerland).
