Abstract

Professional training of engineers who teach at secondary schools and universities of technical orientation was initially focused only on technical training. Experience has shown that the success of such training depends also on whether they acquire the necessary pedagogical erudition. We consider it important that university teachers acquire the theoretical and practical pedagogical-psychological training aimed at tertiary teaching. By this, one element of quality assurance in higher education within the internal quality system is complied. In our paper, we describe the importance of teacher training of university teachers, the importance of engineering education, we point out the importance and place of IGIP (Internationale Gesellschaft für Inginieurpädagogik / International Society for Engineering Pedagogy) in this process and finally, we focus on pedagogical training of university teachers as part of quality assurance in higher education within the internal quality system at Dubnica Institute of Technology in Dubnica nad Váhom, Slovakia.
