The specific aim of the basic course is to provide foundational knowledge of learning theories for higher level education and of society’s goals and regulations for the education.

The aim of the course is also to provide ethical awareness in relation to issues such as view of human beings, approach, responsibility and the rule of law.

  • This course is only offered to staff, to doctoral students and to applicants for docentship at the University of Gothenburg.
  • This course is primarily aimed at those who don't speak Swedish.
