Open lecture: Transformative student learning gains

Welcome to the open lecture and seminar aimed for all members of academic community!

Opening lecture of the lecture series “Insights into learning and teaching in transforming contexts of higher education” (Aug - Nov 2019)

The lecture series addresses topical issues in university communities: How do we know if university teaching promotes student engagement and high-quality learning gains? What is a transformative power of curriculum? How to understand “global attractiveness” and internationalisation of universities?​ The aim is to have an analytical and critical look at development processes in academic work. The lecture series explores new perspectives for the future – from the teacher’s and student’s perspective – in the international/global context of higher education.
