Call for pedagogic development project proposals

Development of Courses at Basic, Advanced and Doctoral levels

To improve the quality of education at KI, the Committee for Higher Education and the Committee for Doctoral Education (through the Course and Programme Committee) have allocated funds respectively to support course providers or teams of teachers committed to developing an existing course according to modern pedagogy and by integrating digital tools.

Course development as well as the implementation and integration of digital tools (for example through the use of relevant functions in Canvas, development of digital examinations, and integration of digital tools that facilitate interactive learning online) is an important part of educational development work at Karolinska Institutet. Because this work requires both time and resources, the available funding will provide support for the salaries of the teachers involved as well as financing support from the Unit for Teaching and Learning (UoL) in advancing the development work.

The courses that are developed will serve as inspiration for other teaching teams, teachers or course providers and promote future educational development through dissemination and the sharing of experiences.

A statement of interest in further developing (an) existing course(s) and a project plan will be assessed for the quality of the course design, feasibility, expected impact, plan for dissemination and engagement. Assessment will be by a group appointed by either the Committee for Higher Education or the Committee for Doctoral Education/Course and Programme Committee.

A call for applications will be announced in August 2020.

As part of the application process, UoL is organizing a workshop on course development according to the ABC model on August 21 (10:00-12:00). Application forms for the workshop will be published in July on higher education courses.
