Teaching Quality in Nordic classrooms: why is it important?
On the webinar organised by the University of Southern Denmark, QUINT researchers presentes different aspects of teaching quality from two QUINT research projects.
What determines teaching quality, and why is it important? On March the 10th, this topic was addressed at a webinar arranged by the Danish Centre for Primary and Lower Secondary Education Research at the University of Southern Denmark/SDU (QUINT Partner University), where the QUINT projects QUISST (Quality in Social Science Teaching) and Connected Classroom Nordic (CCN) presented their research.
Teaching quality is a term which is hard to specify. However, in order to have a better understanding of what works in the classroom, it is important to look at it from different aspects, and applied to different subjects. On the webinar, QUINT researcher Anders Stig Christensen (UCL) shared his and his colleagues take on what constitutes quality in Social science classrooms presenting the ongoing research in QUISST project (presentation in PDF, in Danish).
The ongoing digitalization of society has also changed Nordic classrooms. New digital tools are made available to both teacher and student, and a lot of communication that previously took place «human to human» is now digitalized. How does this impact education and education quality? QUINT researcher Marie Nilsberth (Karlstad University) and the CCN map out this profound development in digitalization presenting some preliminary findings (presentation in PDF, in Swedish).
These and other presentations which were held in Danish and Swedish have been recorded and can be viewed on the website of the SDU.
