CARRERAS, Josep. Evaluation of teaching and faculty promotion (VIII): University Spanish legislation (f): quality of teaching and complementary retributions (1st part). Educ. méd. [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.4, pp.199-205. ISSN 1575-1813.

This article analyses how the university Spanish legislation has tried to increase the quality of teaching establishing diverse types of additional fees for the professorship. Six years after the promulgation of the Law of University Reformation in 1983, it was modified the remunerative regime of the professorship and an educational component of individual character was incorporated to the fee's specific complement in order to improve the teaching. However, this aim was not achieved because most of the Universities, responsible for evaluating the educational merits of the professor-ship, applied very flexible and generous criteria; granting the educational complement in a widespread and practically automatic form. The Organic Law of Universities (LOU), enacted in 2001, determined that the Government and the Autonomous Spanish Communities might establish for the academic staff additional retributions linked to teaching, research and management individual merits. And the law also prescribed that the Social Councils of the Universities, at the proposal of their Governing Councils, might agree the assignment of the above mentioned remunerative complements, previous evaluation of the merits by the National Agency for Quality Evaluation and Accreditation or by the external evaluation body that the Autonomous Communities shall determine. In developing this disposition, the Autonomous Communities set different parameters and criteria, which has led to the coexistence of highly variable remunerative situations. Recently, the Organic Law of Modification of the LOU has added the technology development and the transfer of knowledge to the merits linked to additional fee, but has barely affected the situation for what it does to the encouragement of the teaching function.
