Recommended courses

Course for doctoral students

We recommend the course Learning and Teaching in Higher Education – Theory and Practice, which qualifies you to teach.

Courses for teaching staff

For teachers we recommend the course Learning and Teaching in Higher Education – Theory and Practice, and then one of the two courses below.


Learning and Teaching in Higher Education – Theory and Practice

The course is part of the Faculty of Science’s qualifying teacher training, and comprises three weeks of full-time work. The course is aimed at teaching staff without previous training in teaching and learning.

Syllabus: Learning and Teaching in Higher Education – Theory and Practice

      Education for scientific literacy – sustainability, equality and ethics

      Sustainability, equal opportunities, ethics and reflection are examples of things that should be included in all higher education. But how can we teach this so that it adds value to students' learning of science? In a series of workshops, we meet invited guests, explore good examples, tools and resources, and exchange experiences and ideas on how science teaching and learning could be improved. The workshop series extends throughout the next year. More information to come.

      Supplemented with a project, individual or in groups, the workshops can be recognised as part of the compulsory qualifying teacher training. The course is free of charge for teachers at the Faculty of Science. The course cost for participants from other parts of the university is SEK 7.800.

      Workshop: Education for scientific literacy – sustainable development, 13 October

      How can science education promote sustainable development? Teaching staff are welcome to the third standalone workshop in a series on scientific literacy. The workshop will be held online or in a classroom on 13 October, 13:15–16:00. The last day to register is 5 October.

          Course for prospective docents

          This course is compulsory for appointment as a docent at the Faculty of Science. The course has also proved useful for newly appointed postdoctoral research fellows (forskarassistent), researchers, associate senior lecturers and others, even if they have not yet reached the point of applying for a docentship. The compulsory supervision training is included as part of this course.

          Open Resource: Developing as an academic teacher

          The university offers an open resource that is available freely for academic teachers.
