Core courses

Structure of pedagogical courses
The structure of pedagogical training (25 ECTS)

The training programme consists of four core courses: A! Peda Intro, Learning and teaching in higher education, Course design, and Teaching practice. A! Peda Intro-course is prerequisite for the other courses.

The core courses are usually taught twice a year: once in English and once in Finnish.

A! Peda Intro (5 cr)

The A! Peda Intro course is designed to introduce you to the principles and methods of university pedagogy. The aim of this course is to offer new ideas and tools to help you to develop your teaching.
Please note that this course substitutes the previous O3 course (offered at TKK), so you cannot include both of these courses into a training programme.
