The Rector of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC), Rafael Robaina, and the Vice Chancellor for Quality, Milagros Rico, have delivered this Monday the Docentia-ULPGC Awards, which distinguish the teaching career of a total of 15 teachers, nine in relation to the 2017-2018 call and six from the 2018-2019 call, out of the 20 total awards that are distributed among the three calls that evaluate all the teaching staff. 5 of the 2019-2020 call remain to be awarded.
The distinctions recognize the trajectory of teaching quality on an ongoing basis over the time of the ULPGC teaching staff. These three calls evaluate all the teaching staff, in accordance with the criteria established in the manual verified by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA).
Robaina and Rico they congratulated the winners and insisted on the iImportance of the students’ assessment in the deserving of these distinctions.
Rico remembered that the ULPGC launched its first Docentia-ULPGC call a decade ago, in the 2010-2011 academic year. Since then, each year the university prepares a monitoring report in which it is aware of the transparency, objectivity, results and opportunities for improvement detected, among other aspects.
The provisional monitoring report sent by ANECA in July 2020 indicates the University’s commitment to improving the quality of teaching and highlights the generation of an internal quality assurance system, allowing it to identify its own shortcomings, introduce improvements and modify the procedure manual.
This award can only be obtained once throughout the professional career, and at least one award will be awarded for each branch of knowledge, as long as there are teachers in each of them who meet all the requirements.
The Docentia-ULPGC Awards represent a way not only to recognize a sustained work over time by teachers who give the best of themselves in their teaching activity, but also to stimulate a continuous improvement of the quality of the training given in their centers and departments.
