POLGU - Professionelle und organisationale Leistungskriterien für Forschung und Lehre in der Governance der Universitäten

Principal Researcher

Duration

September 2013 - April 2017

Funded by

German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF)

Description

1. Summary

Current higher education reforms in many OECD countries lead to an increased use of evaluations of teaching and research performance as management tools. From a sociology of professions perspective, this implies the redistribution of authority between management and scientists, which feeds on the difference between organizational and professional performance criteria for teaching and research.

The research project "Professional and organizational performance criteria for research and teaching in the governance of universities" (POLGU) investigates the impact of evaluations on the teaching-research nexus.

2. Aim of the project

The aim of the project is to answer the question how (in what ways, with what effects) imbalances between professional and organizational performance criteria for research and teaching affect the teaching-research nexus across disciplines.

3. Approach

We analyse descriptions of study courses and conduct semi-structured interviews with academics from 11 disciplines (architecture, astronomy, cell biology, communication technology, criminal law, experimental physics, theoretical philosophy, theoretical informatics, new German literature, comparative politics, cardiology). The interviews also collect data on organizational and professional performance criteria and their influence on teaching and research practices.
