AU Educate consists of input provided by teachers and is subject to ongoing development.

The structure of the web resource is based on general themes, each of which contains practical examples from teachers and concrete tools which other teachers at the Faculty of Arts and AU are welcome to develop for use in their own teaching. We hope that teachers throughout Aarhus University can inspire each other and use this tool to improve our study environment.
