educational competence

The Learning Center supports pedagogical development in a manner of ways. Educational competence is now required to teach in higher education as a means to strengthen quality of teaching and learning.  We help our faculty organize, document, and achieve this.

Our basic pedagogy course, Foundations of Teaching and Learning, is a 200-hour course that meets the national requirements for educational competence. This course is offered for new employees at BI, established lecturers working towards promotion, or those looking to grow pedagogically.

For employees with previous pedagogical background we provide consultation and an option of single modules to help meet these requirements.

BI employees can contact us through: help.bi.no
