If you want to deepen your understanding of educational research and increase your own teaching competence with a scholarly approach, the Teaching and Learning in Higher Education master’s programme is a good option. In the programme, you will get a more scholarly approach to your teaching profession. This includes the ability to critically investigate and analyse teaching and strategically develop an organisation. This competence leap will qualify you for more skilled professional assignments and expand your opportunities to participate in academic dialogue.
Studying at a 50 per cent pace and with the option of participating either on campus, online or in both ways allows you as a student in the programme to work alongside your studies. This programme offers you a path to career development within higher education or adult education in related fields. The programme is suitable for people who are already working in higher education or a related field, or have at least 60 credits of coursework in educational or behavioural sciences.
The programme is designed to provide students with the teaching skills necessary to meet future challenges in higher education. It is the first English-taught master’s programme in Sweden with a focus on teaching for higher education. The programme is part of an active research environment at Malmö University focussing on higher education.
The curriculum reflects the multidisciplinary nature of pedagogy of higher education and this focus shapes the courses and reading lists. The courses address themes such as student-centred teaching, teaching of heterogeneous student groups, challenge-based learning, and the digitalisation and internationalisation of higher education.
The programme provides you with in-depth knowledge of learning theories, teaching methods and adult learning. This also includes the ability to critically analyse learning environments and engage in strategic organisational development efforts. You will learn about central concepts within the field of higher education and related research.
The programme is also closely tied to practice and profession. As a student, you will use your own work experiences as a starting point to investigate and examine differences in teaching environments.
