D What else should I know?

D1 Is it actually possible to follow up on the topics FeedbackPLUS is dealing with?

Topics and content received by feedback management are analyzed each semester. The feedback is recorded anonymously and statistically evaluated. The semester report is publicly available to students and university staff on the university's quality management platform (>>Stichworte A-  Z >Feedbackmanagement >Semesterreports). The feedback management statute of RheinMain University of Applied Sciences stipulates in detail how your data is processed and protected.


D2. How was FeedbackPLUS actually established at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences?

FeedbackPLUS was developed and implemented in 2014/15 at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences as part of a project financed by the structural study program of the Hessen State Ministry of Higher Education, Research, Science and the Arts.

The aim was to establish a low-threshold opportunity for (anonymous) feedback for students. On the one hand this additional service was designed to support the university in closing its feedback loops for the continuous improvement of study quality, and on the other hand to pursue its strategic goals in the area of study and teaching in a tailored manner.


D3. Who was involved in developing the concept? 

The concept to introduce FeedbackPLUS was developed in close cooperation with various stakeholders. From the very beginning, it was important to the project team to involve university bodies, such as the Senate and the Staff Council, but especially the student body, represented by AStA and the student councils of the faculties. Consistent communication and the participation of all organizational units were key success factors of the project to establish FeedbackPLUS as a trustworthy and meaningful service.


D4. What are the disticntive freatures of FeedbackPLUS at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences?

Thanks to the good cooperation of all parties involved, RheinMain University of Applied Sciences was the first university in Germany that drafted a statute for feedback management, which  regulates the personal data handling in feedback management, and establishes legal certainty. The All-Campus Staff Council, the Data Protection Officer, and the AStA agreed upon the statute. It was approved by the Senate, and legally adopted by the President's Council.
