LTH's Pedagogical Academy

University teachers (excluding postgraduate students) at the Faculty of Engineering (LTH) are invited to have their teaching qualifications assessed with the aim of being accepted into LTH’s Pedagogical Academy. Those accepted will be awarded the distinction of Excellent Teaching Practitioner (ETP), and get an immediate rise in salary. Moreover, the department to which they belong will receive an increase in their undergraduate teaching grant. The rise in salary corresponds to what a senior lecturer gets upon promotion to a senior researcher (docent).

Applicants who wish to be admitted to LTH's Pedagogical Academy must show how they over a period of time, consciously and systematically have endeavoured to develop means of enhancing students’ learning in their discipline, and how they have made their own experience in teaching available to others within the academic community. Applicants must also be able to analyse and reflect upon their teaching practices with the aid of pedagogic literature and other sources of information, and show how they have used these to develop their thoughts concerning the teaching and the learning process.

The course Teaching Portfolio Workshop has no formal connection to the Pedagogical Academy, but is a course for all teachers wanting to increase their ability to write a well-thought-out and reflective pedagogical portfolio. The course follows the guidelines for pedagogical portfolios as they are described in the document on LTH's Pedagogical Academy (2017-11-20, see above) and within the framework of the course, the Pedagogical Academy will also be discussed. The course is part of the qualifying pedagogical education at LTH.

ETP coaching

This support is intended for those who have come a long way in their teaching career and have a well-developed pedagogical portfolio to start from. You must have completed the course Teaching Portfolio Workshop or the corresponding before the coaching.

This coaching is a two-step feedback process, where the first step involves collegial feedback based on LTH's criteria for ETP. After this, feedback is given by Elisabeth Nilsson and Jenny Schelin, both senior lecturers with many years of experience with the ETP process, and the assessment of pedagogical merits.

The coaching starts off with a workshop 3 December 2024 at 9:15-12:00.
