Theme of this year’s conference: Active academic teaching for education development
Active academic teaching, or active teacher participation, deals with the practical exercise of academic teaching and its connection to active student participation and collegiality. Active academic teaching includes the critical and systematic approach but places more focus on the teacher’s interaction with students and the colleagues. Closely related to active student participation, active academic teaching includes planning, commitment and enthusiasm, activating teaching methods, partnership co-creation and collaboration to improve the quality of teaching. Active academic teaching takes place at both micro level (the individual) and meso level (the collegial) and is characterized by a shared responsibility and a lasting cycle that contributes to the pedagogical quality development work at the university.
