The Introduction and Continuation courses should be taken sequentially. Together, they make up five weeks of teacher training, which is commonly expected for teaching positions or promotions at Lund Univeristy. Each Faculty or Department may require additional training up to ten weeks or more. 

We offer additional Thematic and Project courses for teachers to advance their pedagogical development. Those interested may select the courses that cater to their needs or interests, though these courses may require previous pedagogical coursework.
