The essay focuses on the delicate question of recognition, evaluation and certification of teaching skills. The twenty-first century shows the crisis of the traditional educational paradigm. The global and digital world requires a different combination between teaching and learning, defying the entire academic community to assume its responsibility in the promotion of Quality Assurance University Policies. The idea that accompanies the reflection is how to promote a culture of evaluation as instrument of organizational and professional empowerment, based on management instruments, certainly perfectible, but useful to start virtuous circles of reflexivity and improvement as request by any learning organization.
