Arts teachers in HEIs towards the need of professional evaluation – comparative studyAbstract
This communication focuses on the difficulty on assessment of arts university teachers professional competencies in Portugal and Chile. We have seen remarkable changes in the assessment of teachers and university courses in the Bologna process and other international contexts. However the new rules require substantial changes in the role of teachers, their training and academic performance. Teachers of art, especially, feel his status quo threatened by the new assessment models and find difficult to accept their professional identity as teachers.
