The dghd (German Association for Educational and Academic Staff Development in Higher Education) is the association of German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland). Its members are institutions or persons that work and do research in the field of academic development or that are interested in developing the quality of Higher Education in German-speaking countries. Becoming a member of the dghd was just as natural for GKS as being a member of DeGEval.
What is taught and how can and should differ, but besides all the differences, common quality standards among universities are important. The dghd establishes the content-related quality frame, while GKS considers it as its mission to look for ways to support the observance of these frames.
GKS joined the dghd on 28 March 2018, and is looking forward to gaining insights into the principles of teaching at universities and how to secure their quality.
