Records management of teaching materials

The teaching materials you produce are public records and therefore must be deposited in long-term safekeeping or deleted. For advice and help, contact your department director of studies or the Faculty Archivist.

Teaching materials which must be deposited

Certain materials and documents produced when teaching or supervising students must be archived:

  • Your teaching materials, compendiums, lab instruction manuals, and similar.
  • Past examination papers.
  • Marking schemes if they contain information not already in the Ladok system.
  • Student papers
  • Contracts and agreements with industrial or academic partners about degree projects.
  • Course evaluations.
  • Individual study plans for doctoral students.
  • Minutes from doctoral student appraisals.

Teaching materials which should be deleted

Materials and documents of secondary importance should be deleted:

  • Teaching materials of a temporary nature, to be deleted when no longer relevant.
  • Individual study plans for degree projects, to be deleted once the project is finished.
  • Written assignments other than student papers, to be returned or deleted after two years.
