Teaching day

Per Bakke

This year “the teaching day” (undervisningsdagen) will be held in cooperation with K1. It will be arranged over two half days instead of one. The first session is planned before lunch October 1st and the second October 14th (same time). The reason for the two-day-seminar is that we have to coordinate it both in K1 and K2’s schedule. On October 14th participators from the other medical schools in Norway will hold lectures about E-learning experiences. Digital exam is about to be introduced and it will be interesting to learn about how other institutions have tackled this. Another Teaching day focus is the new Medical school curriculum and how it will affect all the lecturers at the institute. One of several key topics in the new plan is students’ skill requirements and how to enforce them. This means several important areas need to be discussed and agreed upon. A big Thanks to the K2 teaching day committee Harald Wiker and Torbjørn Jonung. They have planned an interesting and relevant program.


Participation is mandatory for teachers and lecturers. Please put the two dates in your calendar right away!



Replacement of windows in the Lab-building

Advarsel skiltMonday, 15 June Bolseth glass starts working on the replacement of windows in the 9th, 8th and 7th floors: the part of the facade that is on Vivári side of the building !!!!!!
 They will start working from the rig site, (“upstairs- behind Vivári”) beginning with the dismantling of all SHED- curtains (the outer gray ones) on the Vivári side side of the building. 
This means there colud be some problems if the sun choose to show itself in the coming 14-day period. Then there will be no other sun shielding in the three floors than any “loose internal” blinds.
The actual glass replacement begins around 18.06. in and will take well one week.
Thereafter SHED-curtains will be remounted, and then they will proceed to the next half of the building on the 7th, 8th, and 9th floor and follow the same procedure.
When the windows are replaced, the entire window is lifted out, and offices will be fully open for a while.
This means that everyone must clear away things that are in window sills. Loose papers in bins and on office desks also need to be cleared away so that they do not blow away when the windows are removed.
Contacts at UiB is Irene Hjelmaas or Siv Eggereide.
