Qualifying Course for University Teachers in Sweden

Goal: The primary target group of this course is employees and PhD students at Luleå University of Technology. The aim is that the participant will develop fundamental pedagogical proficiency for teaching in Higher Education generally and at LTU specifically.

The participants will develop a readiness to constructively take part in discussions among colleagues on the topic of education and improvement in teaching within their own fields. The contributions should be based on scientific grounds and proven experience.

Moreover, participants shall begin describing their basic pedagogical standpoints, both in view of their own development but also for purpose of the qualification needed for employment. The course also aims for participants to develop a curiosity on teaching and the basic competence needed for active participation in further opportunities for pedagogical development, i.e: courses, workshops, development projects etc...

Finally, the course has the purpose of creating a network for organizational development in general and pedagogical development in particular at LTU.

LTU’s Learning Management System (a.k.a LMS) Canvas, – should be considered as a core system since the majority of teachers and students at LTU using Canvas to support the learning process. The participant should aim to gain knowledge on designing learning environments in Canvas, based on acquired knowledge from the different topics in the Qualifying Course for University Teachers course and experienced Canvas users.
The design of the course T7005T-Aerospace Materials is analyzed according to the pedagogical principles of constructive alignment [1, 2]. It is found that a design issue exists, particularly in the section of the course devoted to damage in composite materials. This view is supported by the feedback gathered from students who attended the course in the previous academic year. Upon consideration of examples available in the literature, the flipped learning approach is regarded as a good fit to correct the identified design issue. Based on the analysis of the signature pedagogy [3] and of the threshold concepts [4] of Materials Science & Engineering, a new flipped-classroom design is proposed for the Aerospace Materials course.
