About the Event

Our main attraction for this event is an analysis of a successful course, inspired by the "Course Anatomy Session" format at Jönköping International Business School, with this year's winner of JU's educational award, Björn Erfors. In the session, Björn will dissect and analyze the successful components to improve teaching in emergency care by bridging the gap between theory and practice. You will gain insights into course ideas, planning, delivery, and how constructive alignment has been utilized in course design.

The event also includes a micro-lecture on academic teaching, a method where university teachers continuously and systematically reflect on, investigate, and develop their teaching methods to improve student learning. Academic teaching, or Academic Teachership in English, is closely related to the broader concept of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL), which involves systematic efforts to improve teaching and learning and is often used synonymously with Academic Teachership in various contexts. Both emphasize the importance of research, reflection, and development in educational practices.

The event is inspired by the TEDx event format, ensuring it will be both informative and engaging. As we delve into academic teaching, we aim to enable teachers to solve pedagogical challenges, promote collegial learning and co-creation, and expand their pedagogical repertoire to facilitate lifelong learning.
