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.
The objective of the conference is to provide for the participants an opportunity to
This year we direct our attention to Group work - formats, function, facilitation, and effect on learning and well-being.
A large part of the students' learning in higher education - and perhaps the most important and deepest part - takes place through work in groups in seminars, practice classes, laboratories and preparation outside of class.
And many higher education institutions are officially based on the Study Activity Model which sets the norm for study activities in and outside of teaching hours, and which in practice depends on well-functioning study groups.
Finally, working communities in groups are very crucial for the development of sense of belonging and self-efficacy related to studies and student life, which in turn is crucial for well-being and persistence.
Therefore, there are many good reasons to exchange experiences on how the work in study groups can be integrated and facilitated as best as possible.
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.
