Give us your input to AU Educate

Our ambition is to collect as many relevant inputs as possible from teachers at Aarhus University. We would love to hear from you if you have a good example from your own teaching practice, whether it's in class, supervision, related to exams or how you support student's academic literacy. 

What's the point of contributing?

The purpose of contributing is to inspire your colleagues to develop their teaching practice and try new activities that have already been successful to others. By contributing you can help improve the study environment at Aarhus University. Additionally, you can choose to add your published input to your pure-profile, leading to more dialogue and recognition of your teaching efforts. 

How can you help?

You contribute to AU Educate by describing an activity from your teaching practice that supported student learning. Download and fill out the contribution form. You're welcome to contact us if you need any support in describing your activity or find the best possible angle in your contribution. Email it to Pernille Risør Elving, prelving@tdm.au.dk.

Your input has to contain information about the course and a description of the specific activity or plan in a way that other teachers can perform a similar activity. Furthermore you have to outline your didactic motivation for doing the activity including the outcome of the practice and benefits for the students. You will find the guideline for an example of practice in the contribution form. 



All contributions to AU Educate are written by teachers and librarians at the Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University. You can see a list of AU Educate contributors below.
