Pedagogical courses as a way to support communities of practice focusing on teaching and learning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


This paper argues for the idea that pedagogical courses for university teachers should be designed with a socio cultural perspective on learning in mind. It also presents an example of such a design.

Teaching and learning regimes are ways to understand crucial aspects of teaching within e.g. departments. They are constructed within communities of practice where colleagues use whatever resources they have in order to make sense of their teaching and learning context. Development of teaching needs to address this circumstance. Pedagogical courses for university teachers might be one of the most powerful means to do this.
