Introduction to Teaching

Introduction to teaching - for new university teachers

Our introduction courses provide a short introduction to teaching for doctoral students looking for confidence and practical tools when starting to teach. If you are planning for a career in academia, we recommend that you instead consider our basic course in higher education teaching and learning, UL1 (equivalent to 7.5 ETCS).
You choose  focus on your introduction course based on your subject area or your faculty. The courses are taught in English or bilingually and correspond to two weeks full-time study, i.e. 3 ETCS.
