The evaluation of the state and reform of higher education pedagogy

According to National education evaluation plan (2020-2022), the evaluation of the state and reform of higher education pedagogy will be carried out in 2022–2023. The evaluation will produce information about the current state of higher education pedagogy, for instance the pedagogical policies and operating models of higher education institutions, the role of digitalisation in teaching and learning, the internal activities for developing teaching and education, and cooperation between higher education institutions aiming at pedagogical development. Information will also be produced about supporting teachers’ pedagogical competence and related incentives. The evaluation will support higher education institutions in developing and renewing higher education pedagogy. The Vision for higher education and research in 2030 and the development projects for competence in higher education pedagogy of the Ministry of Education and Culture form a background for the evaluation.


The members of the planning and evaluation team are:

  • Professor Auli Toom, University of Helsinki (chair)
  • Project manager Tuula Heide, Digivision 2030 project
  • Student Ville Jäppinen, University of Tampere
