Broadened recruitment and participation with maintained quality


Universities in Sweden have as part of their mission to broaden their recruitment to higher education. This means that higher education in Sweden should not be based on elite selection but more on mass education. We as higher education institutions must enable students to complete their education regardless of their background. An amendment to the Higher Education Act in 2002 (Chapter 1, Section 5) emphasised the importance that regardless of ethnic background, gender or functional variation, and regardless of place of residence, it should be possible to study at universities and higher education institutions in Sweden (UKÄ, University Chancellor's Office, 2022).

 

This naturally places higher educational demands on us as providers of higher education. How do we maintain quality but enable everyone to participate? That is, putting broader participation as an element to focus on when we build our courses.

 

How do we support students to succeed in their studies is a key question. This course will focus on empowering the individual teacher to create opportunities for inclusive learning based on their own course without compromising on quality. What are important factors to consider to enable the whole group to share knowledge? How do I structure my lectures and examinations so that all students in my course have an equal chance of passing? are questions that are relevant in this context.
