MN's pedagogical development conference

Every year, more people at MN carry out pedagogical development projects either in connection with LINK's course in local pedagogical development work (50-h) or through study quality funds. With the SoTL principles, there has been an increased focus on contributing to a collegial practice and sharing across, also around teaching. At MN's pedagogical development conference, MN wants to facilitate that the great initiatives are also shared and can contribute to a collegial practice (carried out in English).
