Teaching and Learning in Higher Education 2: Subject Field Pedagogy, 5 hec (HPE102)

The overarching aim of the course is to develop the course participants' ability to analyse, plan, debate, and design university education and the own pedagogical approach based on the research and proven experience.

The focus is on the organisation and planning of courses and modules. Contextual factors, goals, content, learning activities, teaching, evaluation, assessment methods and university students' independent studies as well as the impact of the choice of course design are included in the course. These topics are examined from different perspectives and the relationships between these are debated. Particular attention is devoted to the course syllabus document.

Each term, the course HPE102 is offered at five or six faculties. HPE102 at the Faculty of Science and HPE102 at the IT Faculty are offered in English. The rest of the HPE102 courses are held in Swedish.

While developed to meet specific faculty needs, HPE102 at the Faculty of Science is open for applicants from all of the university's faculties.

HPE102 at the IT Faculty is taught to individual participants. The participant can start the course at any time. The course meetings are going to be coordinated on a case-by-case basis.
