Centre for Excellence in Education
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences hosts one Centre for Excellence in Education (SFU). The SFU title is obtained in strong competition and is assigned for a period of up to ten years, with a minimum of five years.
SFU is initiated by NOKUT. SFU status is awarded to academic communities that have already demonstrated excellent quality and innovative practices in education and that have plans in place for further development and innovation. One of the important requirements the centres have to meet is that they must disseminate their results and knowledge.
Centre for Computing in Science Education (CCSE) aims to integrate computing as a natural tool in basic educations, to make the education research near and to prepare students for an interdisciplinary workplace. The centre was established in 2016 and is hosted by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences
Centre leader: Professor Anders Malthe-Sørenssen, Department of Physics.
