Legal certainty and effectiveness in teaching is about the assignment of the university teacher based on laws, regulations and local governing documents. The purpose of the course is to provide support to teachers to critically and constructively analyze pedagogical and didactic positions, opportunities and choices based on the teacher's formal conditions.

40 h corresponding to one week of full-time studies or 1.5 university credits (högskolepoäng). Please note that a passed result on the course only gives credits (högskolepoäng) after formal approval from your department or school. The same course is also offered in Swedish under the title "Att jobba rättsäkert och effektivt som lärare".

In order to be eligible you need a complete academic degree of at least bachelor's level. Applicants are offered a place on the course on a first-come, first-served basis provided a complete application has been submitted which the applicant’s head or director has approved.
