TUK 2023


Wednesday 15'th of March 2023

Similar to previous years, the Conference on Higher Education Pedagogy organized by the Faculty of Science and Technology, TUK 2023, gives the opportunity to meetings, discussions and presentations of the pedagogical development and educational projects that take place at our faculty. The conference is centered around presentations and discussions with our colleages around various pedagogical projects, including your own if you wish to present your ideas. This provides an excellent forum for pitching new projects and ideas, or make contacts with future partners about educationally relevant issues.

Keynote speaker will be Anna Danielsson, Professor of Science Education, Stockholm University, who will give a presentation on ”Identity perspectives in science education research: What’s in it for university teachers?”. Abstract: Science identity is emerging as an increasingly important perspective for understanding in equalities in science participation. Examining how individuals negotiate their identification with science, or not, offers a powerful way to study inclusion and exclusion from the discipline, which has been associated with and often remains dominated by a narrow social demographic. In a broad sense, this research is inspired by sociocultural theories of activity and identity, which posit that identity is co-produced with social, cultural and material activities. In this presentation I will give an overview of the field of science identities research, with a particular focus on implications for university teachers.

Register to the conference Deadline for participation is 9'th of March.

The conference is between 9:15-16:00 and it is followed directly after by the faculty pub.
