Department Joint Board
The Joint Board is the first internal evaluator of the training activities that take place at the University with reference to the Quality Assurance process.
The innovative aspect is that professors and students participate equally in the Quality Assurance process. The students who make up the CPDS are simultaneously active members of the academic community and users of the services. Students therefore have the opportunity to directly affect the improvement of teaching and its organization. The Joint Board of the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Catania is made up of 6 professors and 6 students representing the bachelor's degree, the master's degree and PhD courses based on the Department.
The Joint Board, the Quality Assurance Committee and the Evaluation Unit are the main actors of Quality Assurance in Italian Universities.
