What can we do for you?

The Learning Unit can assist teachers in a range of areas related to the development of teaching & learning:
  • One-on-one meeting with teachers on planning teaching and on organising learning activities.
  • Help course managers describe new courses or revise old ones in the course base. We can assist with formulating intended learning outcomes (ILOs) according to the SOLO taxonomy. We can also assist with descriptions of learning activities and assessment forms. You can either contact us or read the course description guidelines here.
  • Give feedback on teaching. Together with teachers generate new ideas for learning activities in relation to content, student profiles, intended learning outcomes, assessment etc.
  • Offer short internal workshops (teachIT) for small groups of teachers on topics such as: interactive methods in large classes, peer-to-peer methods, learnIT/wikis/podcast, distributed online learning processes, description of intended learning outcome.
