Educational development and pedagogical leadership in higher education

Conditions for teaching and learning in higher education have changed, for instance through internationalisation, limited funding, widening participation, and digital development. University teachers and educational leaders are continuously striving to find new ways to develop their courses and educational programs. Furthermore, in-service training for university teachers, educational development projects, and systems for quality assurance are developed to improve higher education. The effects of such activities and initiatives, alone or in combination, cannot be taken for granted. Our research aims is to attain a deeper understanding of how interventions like these can converge and lead to educational development. A particular focus is the development and practise of leadership in an educational landscape that is becoming more and more complex. Examples of ongoing projects can be found here.
