MSRP DOPE Faculty Council LAW

With your help we want to improve the quality of education at our faculty. To do so, we have the following plans: Firstly we want to improve the management of knowledge amongst tutors. Students notice a disparity between the experience and quality of teaching provided by their tutors and this in turn results in inconsistent quality of education. Through clearer criteria and better guidelines for teaching jobs, we aim to assure a minimum quality of teaching that is clear for everyone.

Secondly, we aim to create more structure and cohesion between different courses. The current construction of the curriculum causes overlap between courses and this results in a lot of confusion amongst students regarding exams and assignments. Our goal is to create a more structured way of teaching so there is a clear distinction between courses.

Moreover, we strive to improve the structuring of assignments and deadlines. The current system causes confusion and results in a decrease of student participation as well as a setback in grades. This can easily be solved by providing an overview of important deadlines and data at the start of every course.

Additionally, we have noticed that students wish to have a clear contact person to discuss the issues they come across with. We aim to provide this by appointing qualified staff to such positions to assure that problems are delt with accordingly.

Lastly, we would like to solve the well-known problem of study space shortage at the faculty by using empty tutorial rooms as study places at busy periods throughout the year. As we’ve said, we are committed to the interests of students, and we will work hard to turn these points into reality. However, this can only be done with your vote. We hope that we’ve convinced you to vote for us as DOPE for a better faculty and a better UM tomorrow!
