Recognize Outstanding Teaching and Vote for the Teaching Award

When is teaching excellent? Which instructors inspire you?

UZH awards an annual award for excellent teaching to honor instructors who are committed to excellence in teaching. Every November, UZH students can nominate their favorite member of the teaching staff for this award. Each year, the survey focuses on a specific theme that highlights a particular aspect of good teaching. The winner is then selected by a jury from among all nominees.

Quality Development in Teaching

Get involved in UZH’s quality management processes for education and teaching (QMSL). These processes ensure that quality standards in teaching and teaching development are met, and they encourage a dialogue centered on quality among all stakeholders.

Regular and active participation in teaching-related evaluations and quality meetings are your most important contribution in this area: you can use the course evaluations (LVE, ILE) to give your instructors direct feedback on their courses.

Watch the short video to find out more:

Quality meetings are an opportunity to discuss the quality of your study program with those responsible and develop specific measures for improvement.
