Guaranteeing quality education is a right of the people and an obligation of educational institutions. Therefore, they permanently pay attention to and initiate interventions to assure and improve the quality. At the University of Amsterdam (UvA), this focus is mainly on the quality of the taught knowledge and transferring it from teacher to student. An aspect not receiving much attention is how the students feel during the education. COVID-19 raised awareness on the topic of well-being. At UvA, the evaluation surveys were extended with questions about digital education after the course ended, when no improvements were possible any longer. The results only impact the future education and not the student, so students do not feel like filling in the evaluations. Our research focuses on whether personal attention to well-being and personal involvement plays a role in creating added value to the quality of education.
