OSCE and application deadline for status as Excellent Teacher
The White Paper «Quality Culture in Higher Education» emphasized that all Norwegian universities must establish a pedagogical qualification framework. The intention with a pedagogical qualification framework is to inspire and reward teachers and academic communities for systematic work in educational development. At MED, the status as Excellent Teacher leads to a permanent salary raise as well as membership in a “pedagogical academy” of excellent teachers at the faculty. Basic pedagogical qualification is required. There is now a new application deadline for status as Excellent Teacher. It is important to read and address the criteria on which the evaluation of the applications is based. Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you consider submitting an application or have questions. We hope that some of our skilled and enthusiastic teachers will submit well-written applications which will win this award!
Application deadline: November 1st
OSCE 12 will be arranged on December 8th, and planning is well under way. The responsible persons for subjects that are part of the exam this year are alerted and will recruit sensors. The administration will reach out to administrative and technical staff and request their participation. OSCE is important and require teamwork and team spirit. We expect that everybody responds to requests with a positive attitude. We want to thank all of you who have contributed in previous years – and those of you who are contributing to OSCE 12 this December!
