Undervisa på universitet: Kunskap, lärande och praktiskt lärarskap (KLL)
This is a good course to start with if you do not have any courses in higher education pedagogy. The course is primarily aimed at new teachers at Karlstad University, but the course is focused on practical teaching, and therefore suitable for teachers with extensive experience as well.
80 hours. Approximately 40 h are scheduled lectures.
When meeting students, in the classroom, online, individually or in groups, the teacher must handle the situation in such a manner that the student undertakes the endeavor of learning something new. Based on research about learning and different types of knowledge, this course aims to give practical tools for skillful teaching at the university level.
In the course, we engage in the practicalities of handling various, common, teaching scenarios such as lecturing and/or laboratory supervision, in various group sizes.
To be approved for the course and receive a course certificate, the participant must be present and participate in all five meetings. A catch up day will be arranged for those who miss a meeting.
After the course, the participants should be able to:
- Reflect on their own view of the university teacher's role and significance for students' studies
- Use relevant techniques as well as analog and digital tools to act in teaching situations
- Plan and carry out higher education based on basic ideas in pedagogy and rhetoric
- Discuss and reflect together with others on ethical and special educational perspectives on teaching in higher education

ECTS credits are not awarded for UPE courses. The 1 hp credit presented in the course is a suggestion that must be confirmed by your personal examinator. The courses should be regarded as staff training, designed to develop and ensure high quality in the credit-based education that we offer our students.
However, in some cases, a transfer of ECTS credits may come in question. For example, a doctoral student’s examiner may decide that some of the courses are relevant to the doctoral student’s individual study plan and transfer credits for those courses.
