The University pedagogy conference 8-10 November, 2023

Pedagogical gems – 30 years of teaching and learning.

The University pedagogy conference (UPK) takes place every other year at Umeå University. The very first conference was held in 1993 which means that this is the 30 year anniversary. The theme of the conference is aligned with the anniversary and focuses on pedagogical gems, past and present.

The conference is aimed at all teaching staff, pedagogical leaders, management and educational administration functions at Umeå University. In particular we welcome presentations that encourage active participation and presentations given in collaboration with students.

You can present either in Swedish or English at the conference.
