Single presentation - 30 Minutes
The paper addresses the question of interconnectivity and interdependency of distinct responsibilities with regard to teaching and learning in HE which can be ascribed to different academic stakeholders and interest groups. In the framework of a triangular perspective on responsibility which takes into account the governance level of HEI as well as teachers and students we discuss several initiatives which have been taken on by the University of Graz in order to improve the quality of teaching and learning. The aim is to show how the different responsibilities interact and which efforts could be made to foster the linking ties between them in order to further improve the quality of teaching and learning in HE, bearing in mind the acquisition of key competences in particular.
