La qualité de l’enseignement dans le supérieur, 12-13 octobre 2009, Istanbul

12-13 octobre 2009, Istanbul Technical University (ITU), Istanbul, Turkey
Dans le contexte de la croissance et de la diversification soutenues des systèmes d’enseignement supérieur, la société civile a des préoccupations croissantes concernant la qualité des programmes offerts aux étudiants. La qualité de l'enseignement est influencée par les variations contextuelles dans l'environnement de l’enseignement supérieur, telles que l'internationalisation des études et les nouvelles missions que l'enseignement supérieur est censé effectuer pour optimiser l'innovation, l’engagement civique et le développement régional, offrant une main d'œuvre qualifiée pour relever les défis du 21ème siècle.
Les établissements essaient de relever ces défis. Ils soutiennent et mettent en application une série de combinaisons, de principes ou de procédés d'évaluation, pour identifier, favoriser et récompenser les pratiques d’un bon enseignement. La conférence sur la qualité de l’enseignement se concentrera sur la valeur, la pertinence et l'impact de telles initiatives, rassemblant des chercheurs, des universitaires, des étudiants, et des dirigeants d’établissements du monde entier, afin de discuter des méthodes visant à améliorer la qualité de l'enseignement dans le supérieur.
Le but de la conférence d'OECD-IMHE sur la qualité de l’enseignement, est de présenter les initiatives et les politiques de qualité efficaces des établissements, et d'encourager la réflexion sur les stratégies et les pratiques qui peuvent leur permettre d'améliorer la qualité de leur enseignement et, au final,, la qualité des acquis de l’apprentissage.

In the context of the sustained growth and diversification of higher education systems, the civil society has increasing concerns about the quality of the programs offered to students. The quality of teaching is influenced by contextual shifts in the higher-education environment, such as the current internationalisation of studies and the additional missions that education is being asked to perform – innovation, civic and regional development, producing an appropriately skilled workforce to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Institutions are trying to respond to the above challenges. They are supporting and implementing a range of schemes, processes or evaluation mechanisms to identify, promote and reward good teaching practices. They are paying more attention to the crucial role of the faculty members in the accomplishment of the educational trajectory of the students. Some have been reflecting on the educator’s role and missions in the learning process and have been exploring the conditions leading the faculty to succeed.The interest in quality teaching is stimulated even more by factors external to institutions, at the national, and in many cases, international levels (like the Bologna process in Europe). These factors have worked as facilitators or catalysts, fostering a general climate conducive to the recognition of teaching quality as a priority.  The goal of the OECD-IMHE Conference on Quality Teaching is to highlight effective institution-wide quality teaching initiatives and policies and to encourage reflection on strategies and practices that may allow institutions to improve the quality of their teaching and thereby, the quality of the learning outcomes.
