All students are entitled to a good study environment in which they thrive academically and socially. At ITU, we consider it a shared responsibility among staff and students to create and sustain a thriving and inclusive study environment.
THE STUDY ENVIRONMENT ASSESSMENT
It is a legal requirement for all educational institutions to carry out an assessment of the physical, psychological and aesthetic study environment at least every third year and to follow up on results.
ITU’s regular Study Environment Assessment uses data from the The Danish Study Survey (Danmarks Studieundersøgelse) a survey carried out by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. Moreover, the assessment is based on data from a series of questions on the study environment designed by the The Danish Centre for Educational Environment.
THE ACTION PLAN
To discuss and follow up on results from the Study Environment Assessment, SAP provides management and decision-making bodies with statistics and tables showing results by study programme and for ITU as a whole.
Student representatives in the SAT groups and in the Board of Studies are important actors in the follow-up process. The Board of Studies is responsible for discussing, identifying and deciding on areas in need of improvement. The board makes an action plan and distribute responsibilities for implementation of actions among management, decision-making bodies, committees, departments etc. Dean of Education Support assists in this process.
THE ACTION PLAN JUNE 2021-JUNE 2024
The Study Environment Assessment Action Plan June 2021-June 2024 consists of initiatives and projects within three overall themes (Wellbeing, Learning environment, and Physical environment), which will be carried out by and involve students, staff and management.
The Action Plan is dynamic and updates on progress, adjustments, etc. will be published regularly. Moreover, the Action Plan was slightly revised in Spring 2022 after receiving new data from the Ministry of Higher Education and Science in January 2022.
