Masters of Didactics

How can we strengthen the students’ desire to explore, widen their worldview and develop their academic skills? This project focuses on didactic development, teaching and learning in higher education. 60 university teachers from Poland and the same number of faculty from the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies (ILN), the Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages (ILOS) and the Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages (IKOS) participate in the project.

About the project

The Master of Didactics Programme is an international collaboration between the University of Oslo (UiO) and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland. Our skilful mentors from ILN, ILOS and IKOS will work one-on-one with 60 Polish university teachers in order to develop their didactic strategies and methods, with a special focus on excellent teaching. The programme concentrates on experience sharing and reflection, and includes workshops, lectures, tutorials (both in groups and one-on-one) and observation. We encourage both parts to participate actively with constant mutual feedback - to challenge and motivate each other to inspiring changes in one’s own conception of and practical approach to teaching.

Objectives

The project's goal is to promote a shift in how teaching is conceived of in higher education, a shift that is for the benefit of students. The participants discuss and analyse the didactic tools, strategies and methods currently used at the University of Oslo, and reflect on how and to what extent these can be implemented in Poland.
