The evaluation of university teachers.
From the control of pedagogical skills to professional development mechanisms
By: Nicole Rege Colet, Denis Berthiaume

Against a background of the construction of the Swiss university landscape, this article examines the development and evolution of evaluation practices within university universities. It postulates an initial reluctance to directly assess teachers and evokes the hypothesis of a shift in practices initially focused on the evaluation of teaching by students in favor of integrated devices oriented towards the professional development of university teachers. It therefore examines the tension between a control approach and a development approach, including the practical and structural implications for Swiss universities.
