Get inspired to teach study strategies in your teaching

Our takeaway teaching programme spans several teaching times and focuses on developing study competences. Through the courses, you can find inspiration for facilitating activities that you can integrate either in your teaching or as part of the students' preparation.

We call it "takeaway teaching" because you will have a completed programme from a clinician, which you will then have to adapt into your own teaching. These are teaching elements built up in accordance with general didactic principles, which you must actively adapt and use to suit the academic content.

The overall purpose of the takeaway teaching is for students to get better through their studies and strengthen their academic competences. From our research, we know that self-regulated learning, where the students are aware of how they best study, and how they develop and regulate their own study strategies, is effective in relation to this. The academic outcome of the students. As a consequence, the course focuses on academic competences across disciplines and fields of study which both the lecturer and the students must relate to their own specific academic competences.

  • helps to improve the study strategies of students
