Abstract

The model of Assessment of Academic Staff Work Performance and Feedback has been designed at Tallinn University of Technology (TTU). The model links the main stages of the assessment process from collecting data for compiling a personal portfolio and analyzing personal training needs, to conducting the development and career interview and finalizing with attestation interview. Professional Competencies Self-Evaluation Questionnaire for evaluation of pedagogical/professional competencies of academic staff has been designed based on the model of IGIP competencies of engineering educators’ obtained by passing the IGIP curriculum. The main emphasis of this paper lies on training needs analysis pilot survey, carried out by implementing Professional Competencies Self-Evaluation Questionnaire for academic staff members in TTU in March 2017. The results of the analysis of the pilot survey are presented in the paper.
