About the course

Course content

This course introduces the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and inquiry based educational development.

Another part of the course deals with the construction of courses and the ways learning outcomes, learning activities, assessment and evaluation, are linked in what is called "constructive alignment" to support students to achieve the learning outcomes.

Different learning activities such as lecture, seminar, the study group and how these can be related to content and learning outcomes are discussed. Part of the course is based on the students' beliefs about what makes a good teacher and different approaches to knowledge and learning are discussed. Further, the course will address the meeting between the instructor/teacher and student/student, individually and in groups in the perspective of a diverse student population.
