AAU TEACHER OF THE YEAR
Who will become the AAU Teacher of The Year?
Once a year Aalborg University elects a Teacher of The Year based on nominations from students. Apart from the great honour, the elected course lecturer, project supervisor or semester coordinator receives a cash bonus.
As usual there will be workshops and a poster session, where you can learn new things and discuss experiences with your colleagues. The topics relate to teaching in relation to the overall theme. You can participate in workshops on visual facilitation, Microcredentials in a million different ways, Enable your students' creativity during your teaching, and more.
Sharing of knowledge and practices across AAU is a priority, and you are invited to contribute with a workshop or poster within the overall theme. Your workshop can be in Danish or English. Send us your proposal no later than April 16.
The organizing group will review workshop and poster proposals and inform all workshop organizers. Registration for the workshops opens after this, but be sure to sign up for the learning day before this.
Do not miss out on key note speaker Professor Siân Bayne from Edinburgh University. She will give an exciting presentation on her research on Higher Education Futures.
Title: Education Futures and a Manifesto for Teaching Online
Abstract: This talk will share some of the research and thought behind the Manifesto for Teaching Online developed at the University of Edinburgh. The Manifesto – based in a diverse and critical research programme in online and digital education – offers a provocative ‘way in’ to understanding some of the trends and trajectories currently shaping the future of education in universities. The talk will advocate for strongly research-based, critical and creative practice in education, and for the assertion of the agency of institutions, academics and students as we work to build positive futures for higher education teaching.
Sian Bayne is Professor of Digital Education and Director of Education at the Edinburgh Futures Institute at the University of Edinburgh. She directs the Centre for Research in Digital Education, where her research is currently focused on higher education futures and on interdisciplinary and critical approaches to researching digital education. She is one of the authors of The Manifesto for Teaching Online, recently published by MIT Press. Sian gives regular keynotes on the future of digital education, publishes widely and has conducted research funded by UKRI, Erasmus+, AdvanceHE and NESTA, and has a leadership role at the University of Edinburgh as Assistant Principal Education Futures.
More information about her work is on her web site.
