Educational monitoring

Lena Wallenbro, a former study adviser for the scientific and JURISTPROGRAMMT, has responded to questions regarding further studies for you on the science programme. You can read the answers here.

The legal association has always been keen that the education at Örebro University keeps the quality required of the students. It follows that the legal association also conducts educational surveillance. For questions about training, if you would like to become a training monitor or if you would like to provide information relevant to the education coverage, you are welcome to contact Utbildningsansvarige for the legal programme and the Scientific Program. Contact details can be found under the Contact Us tab. Otherwise, there is the possibility to contact us under the tab. 

JF's guidelines regarding training coverage

A part of the legal association's Statutes the Legal association has always been keen that the law-and legal program keeps the quality that we students require but also has the right to. The education coverage is one of the most important points in the association's statutes and is therefore a central part of the association's operations.

How does training monitor work? The Legal Association conducts educational surveillance mainly through training monitors, which are available for each semester of the law and legal programme. Once a month, the training monitors and educators for each programme meet to discuss the education at a study council. What is discussed at the meeting is then compiled in a report sent to Juridicum. When the opportunity exists, a representative, usually a course coordinator, participates in the study Council. In this way, there is close contact between the education and the responsible teachers on the Juridicum in order to be able to influence the training in the best possible way.

What do education monitors do? The task of training monitors is to reconcile with the students how the training works and any problems that have not been raised with the course coordinator or which the student feels that he does not want to take up with the course director or the responsible teacher himself. It may be positive as negative. The comments are then taken by the training monitor/guards to the study Council. The work also includes equality monitoring. Is there, for example, enough gender perspective in teaching and is there an equality splash in education?

What rights do students have?

  • A moment must be corrected within 15 working days
  • Compulsory parts must not be added during the course
  • You are entitled to a break
  • You have the right to write your exam anonymously
  • You are entitled to a re-examination within 5 weeks

… These are some examples of all the rights we students have…

Affect your education! All students are entitled to an education that holds a high class, therefore it is important that you as a student pay attention to problems regarding teaching, programs or problems that are school.

After each completed course, the students receive a course evaluation of the teacher concerned with an encouragement to perform it. We as educators think everyone should do them! The more they do – the easier it is for the teacher concerned to change the structure.  We as educators are dependent on students ' opinion – without their opinions, we cannot influence education or courses.

Educational monitoring is the foundation of everything – you as a STUDENT have the right to a good and stimulating education.

Your rights regarding education should not be ignored by the university!
