Jone Trovik has been the leader of teaching at K2 since 2015. She took on this important responsibility in connection with the implementation of the new curriculum. Jone has done this in a very satisfactory way. Surely there was no downside to her being an active gynecologist! In addition, she has contributed constructive input to the many issues we are working on at K2. In particular, I want to highlight her good mood and contagious laughter. It’s never boring when Jone is there. Thank you so much, Jone!
Everything has to come to an end, and after 4 ½ as leader of teaching, it was natural with a change. The new leader of teaching is Mette Vesterhus. She is a 50/50 associate professor / consultant physician (gastroenterology) at Haraldsplass Diakonale Sykehus. She has had a research stay at Harvard and has her research interests in diseases of the liver and biliary tract. Vesterhus has been interested in teaching since the days of her studies. She has been a student representative both to the Student Parliament at UiB and to the National Student Organization. Since 2018, she has been the subject manager for the propedeutics teaching for medical students at Haraldsplass.
Welcome Mette as leader of teaching at K2!
The university has now set up an electronic course on how to avoid infections (smittevern) everybody needs to take before going back to the lab.
In these times of home office, at least one thing remains the same. We remind you that the deadline for registering the main holiday is set for May 1st this year. Application for holidays is posted in the HR portal as usual.
Hei alle som underviser ved K1 og K2!
Vi merker oss at de to rommene i sentralblokken hvor det er tilrettelagt for digital undervisning, ikke er mye brukt. Dette tilbudet var veldig etterspurt for en tid tilbake.
Hvis det er fordi de andre løsningene for å undervise fungerer bedre enn tidligere, så er det supert. Men om det skyldes manglende kjennskap til tilbudet, så vil jeg gjøre noe med det nå.
Under finner du informasjon om følgende:
– Info om egne rom for digital undervisning
– Mulighet for å søke gjestekonto ved UiB (nyttig å videresende til sykehusansatte som underviser)
