Teaching Excellence Series

Teaching Excellence Series is BI's professional development courses for lecturers. Attending the course and writing a paper will give you a course sertificate documenting your basic knowledge of pedagogy and teaching. The course is offered both in Norwegian and English.


Pedagogical tools for planning a course or a lecture is the first you will learn in this course. You learn about constructive alignment and how to align your classes with the learning objects of the course. We also show you have to structure a lecture and give you some hands-on advice on how to activate students in large classes. 

Blended learning

The focus of blended learning is how to combine classroom teaching with digital tools. You will both learn how to plan for blending and get some hands-on experience with some digital tools. 

Feedback and assessment

How do you create feedback loops where students learn and contribute to quality feedback? You also learn tools to give students feedback, especially for large classes. 

Educational use of video

Are you curious about how to integrate video in your teaching? Do you want to make your own videos or learn how to get the best out of using videos that others have made in your teaching? In this part of the course you will make your own videos and get feedback on how to improve it. You also learn how to make good videos and how to use the videos for enhanced learning. 


To receive the course certificate you need to attend the whole course and write a paper. The course certificate is a documentation of your didactic and digital competency.
