Autumn 2022

Due to staff shortage, there are only 12 seats on the autumn course. Furthermore, these places are already reserved for applicants who did not get a place on the previous semester's course. However, you are welcome to register your interest on our waiting list. Then we will contact you if a place becomes vacant.

The waiting list is open for staff at all faculties, including Sahlgrenska.

The start date for the course is not yet decided.


In this course we will explore how to approach your teaching with a scientific eye and help you design courses that effectively teach your students how to think like a scientist while becoming more interested and motivated about your topic. You will use backward design to plan a course and get a toolbox of good examples of active teaching and assessment methods. This course will be taught in English. During the autumn term of 2021, the course will be taught completely online.


You must be an employee or doctoral candidate at University of Gothenburg and have a Degree of Bachelor or equivalent. 

Please note: This course is only offered to staff, to doctoral students and to applicants for docentship at the University of Gothenburg.

About course certificates

PIL102 is a certification course. All course meetings and assignments are mandatory and require attendance. In some cases, it will be possible to submit a supplementary assignment that corresponds to the meeting or assignment missed. To be approved for a certificate, you must also achieve the learning objectives in the course syllabus.

PIL102 was introduced on January 1, 2021 as a replacement for the credit course HPE102, which was then phased out. The content and basic structure of PIL102 are the same as for HPE102, and the course gives the same eligibility.


Course of studies

We recommend you to take PIL101 before PIL102. To get admittance to PIL103, you must have passed both PIL101 (or HPE101) and PIL102 (or HPE102), or have qualifications assessed as equal by a faculty at the University of Gothenburg. Read more
