Best Practice-projects 2023

Last changed: 04 September 2023

The LTV faculty allocates Best Practice funds annually to provide teaching staff possibilities to develop the quality as well as the content and pedagogics in teaching at bachelor and master level.

SLU are to conduct education based on scholarship or artistic practice and on proven experience (The Swedish Higher Education Act, Chapter 1, 2§). The faculty’s Best Practice funds intends to contribute to ensure that our teaching reaches the learning objectives stated for vocational programmes, as well as for general programmes and single courses.

Teaching staff at the LTV faculty are hereby given an opportunity to competence development, by deepening their knowledge within a field, increase their knowledge about the industry – its conditions and student’s competence needs for a future professional life and/or to develop subject relevant pedagogics.
