Summary/Abstract: In the recent years, research on teaching at the postsecondary level has expanded rapidly. The growing interest in teaching is justified because of the reconsideration of its role and its importance in the structure of the academic activity. In this way, there is an acute requirement for research programs focused on faculty development and quality assurance of teaching in Romanian universities for several reasons: to sustain the progress of research on teaching in higher education at national and international level; to develop a romanian culture for teaching in higher education; to guarantee for the international compatibility of romanian universitary teaching activity, in order to respond to the stipulation of the Bologna Declaration; the main part of faculties in Romanian universities do not have a proper qualification to teach at postsecondary level.In this context, a programme focused on teaching development has two major components: a) the assessment of teaching and b) the improvement of teaching through faculty development programs. Using specific instruments, assessment informs teachers, administrators and students about the quality of teaching activity. Faculty development programmes are aimed at the interpretation and use of the assessment results for teaching improvement purposes.
