Centre for Teaching and Learning
Centre for Teaching and Learning (UPE) supports and stimulates the development of university teachers’ teaching competence. The unit provides active and professional support for quality development of education in the first, second and third cycle at Karlstad University.
Model for teachers’ competence development
UPE's “course catalogue” has been changed and so has our working strategy regarding competence development for university teachers. First and foremost, we want to make it easier for teachers and their supervisors to adapt the teacher's skills development to individual needs, and to the teacher’s current work situation. We will also now distinguish between assessing teachers’ competence ("demonstrated teaching skills") and the actual courses. Compliance with the requirements will be assessed separately, based on that the teacher presents a pedagogical teaching portfolio.
