Centre for Educational Development (UPL) offers you, as a teacher, a wide range of courses for professional development of varying lengths. The courses have been designed to challenge and develop the pedagogical skills that are essential for a university teacher.
The courses are organised according to an open model that offers teachers the possibility to choose courses based on experience, needs and interest.
All the courses contribute to your teaching qualification, as an example you produce material for your teaching portfolio. Furthermore, the courses are a qualification for permanent employment as a teacher at university level.
Registration for courses in the spring opens August 15 and closes October 15. Registration for courses in the autumn opens February 15 and closes April 15.
The courses have three levels with different prerequisites.
The introduction course is a preparatory course for the inexperienced teacher. No previous knowledge or teaching experience is required.
The basic courses are designed to contribute to elementary qualification for an employment as a teacher. You need some experience of teaching and/or have completed the course 'New as a University Teacher'.
The in-depth courses targets you who have completed one or several basic courses (or the equivalent) and have teaching experience.
