That is fine, we understand that you have other things to do, and classes and meeting are important too. Come and go as you wish, you are welcome anyway!
Our main attraction for this event is a breakdown of a successful course, inspired by the "Course Anatomy Session" format at Jönköping International Business School, with this year's recipient of the PED Award at the School of Engineering, Anton Jansson. Anton was nominated by his fellow teachers at the School of Engineering for “Excellence in pedagogic profession”. In the session, Anton will dissect and analyse the successful components of creating and conducting a course, presenting it from A to Z. You'll gain insights into course ideas, planning, delivery, and how constructive alignment has been harnessed in course design.
The event also includes a micro lecture on Academic Teachership, an approach where university teachers continuously and systematically reflect on, investigate, and develop their pedagogical practices to enhance student learning. Academic Teachership is closely related to the broader concept of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL), which encompasses systematic efforts to enhance teaching and learning and is often used interchangeably with Academic Teachership in different contexts. Both emphasize the importance of research, reflection, and development in pedagogical practices.
This event is inspired by the format of TEDx events, ensuring that it will be both informative and engaging. As we delve into the world of Academic Teachership, we aim to empower and enable teachers to solve pedagogical challenges, promote peer learning and co-creation, and expand their pedagogical repertoire to facilitate lifelong learning.
