3. Educational policy

Teaching development day 16.12.

OLARE, a committee within our faculty arranged an event, with emphasis on how to improve teaching in the faculty. The audience was subdivided into groups, which were assigned to brainstorm great teaching methods and practices. Despite the time of the year the attendance was fairly good and most subjects were represented.

Committee of educational policy wishes you happy 2016!

Thank you everyone who participated in educational policy matters in 2015 and a special thanks for student representatives and volunteers! The upcoming year will be at least as challenging as the last one but with seamless cooperation and hard work we can turn challenges into opportunities!

4. Environment
