Throughout her five-day stay, Ms. Weintraub gained valuable insights into various aspects of the University of Innsbruck's operations. Ms. Gegenburger and her colleague, Theresa Hohenauer-Todd, shared their knowledge regarding the university's structures and responsibilities in different fields of practice.
Additionally, the Office of Bologna Process and Teaching Development, represented by Veronika Schaffer and Christina Raab, provided Ms. Weintraub with an in-depth understanding of the Bologna process.
Marianne Prast, representing the Offices for Quality Assurance in Teaching, provided a comprehensive overview of the University of Innsbruck's quality management practices, which aim to uphold the highest standards.
“I had a wonderful visit to the University of Innsbruck!” Ms. Weintraub wrote about her stay.
“My colleagues went above and beyond to tailor a job shadowing program that was beneficial both professionally and personally.
During my stay, I met with colleagues from the office of the vice-rector for teaching and students and AIANI, quality assurance in teaching, the office for Bologna process and teaching development, and the office of the senate.
Everybody I met was friendly, patient, and very nice.
In spite of a few differences between our academic systems, I learned to what extent we all share the same problems and concerns regarding the implementation of new study programs or changes in existing study programs and also measuring and assuring the quality of teaching. I felt that our exchange of information, practices, and dilemmas was fruitful. There are a few ideas I will suggest to my university to adopt.
I look forward to having my colleagues from Innsbruck as guests of my university.”
