Assessment for learning


The course aims to stimulate and support developmental work on assessment and evaluation in the teaching contexts of the participants.

The course is open for teachers and educational leaders, primarily those employed at Lund university. Applicants from other universities are welcome if space allows. The number of participants is limited. We recommend that participants apply as a group of colleagues from the same teaching context (discipline/thematic group/department), preferably joined also with a director of studies or other educational leader, in order for the course to have as much strategic impact as possible. Groups will therefore have priority over individual applicants in the application process.

The course requires no previous course work on teaching and learning. However, we strongly recommend that participants have completed five weeks of pedagogical course work, the minimum requirement for teachers at Lund university.

The course equals three weeks of full-time work stretching over one and a half year. During this period of time there will be seven half-day meetings during one (the first) semester, and four seminars (shorter for supervision, and full days for presentation of projects and evaluation) spread out over the remaining semesters. The participants also write a project report (8-12 pages), preferably focusing on the development of a programme or a sequence of courses.

Unless all participants speak Swedish, the language of instruction will be English. Assessment tasks and project reports may be written in Swedish or English.
