The main theme of the conference is activating teaching and  learning which are the fundamental principles at the University of Southern Denmark, SDU. The conference intends to support practitioners’ mutual inspiration and present knowledge and experiences on how students’ learning is enhanced in accordance with the fundamental principles of SDU.

This year we direct our attention to Supervision.

We have become better at making the teaching space less private by exchanging ideas for teaching methods, inviting colleagues to observe, and discussing our teaching with others in general. However, it is not that common to talk with colleagues at lunch about effective supervision methods or to sit in on supervision sessions to find inspiration for your own supervision practices. Supervision remains a private matter between the supervisor and the one(s) being supervised.

But if we are to develop supervision (and supervisors), it is important that we also open the supervision space and make visible to ourselves, each other, and the students what is happening in the supervision situation. This is what we are aiming for with this year's special theme for TAL, namely Supervision. What is the purpose of supervision, what prerequisites does the one being supervised have, what prerequisites do you as a supervisor have, what supervision activities/methods can be used, in which framework does supervision take place, etc.? Participate in the exchange of experience on questions like these (and probably others as well!) and help open the supervision space for yourself and others!

The conference target group is primarily employees at SDU and the University Colleges in the region.
Meanwhile, the conference is open to everyone and abstracts and sign ups from participants from other national universities and other educational institutions are more than welcome.
