Information about the Uniped-program
Requirements and scope of the program
The scope of the program is a total of 200 hours. The workload is divided into 110 hours in the first semester and 90 hours in the second semester. The first semester consists of an introductory part with meetings and self-studying between each of these, collegial coaching and an educational development project. In the second semester, participants can choose between different modules and the program is completed through a final reflection task.
To pass the program, participants must be present at all meetings and complete all activities related to these, as well as complete the collegial coaching and educational development project. Several of the work requirements are closely linked to your own teaching and it is therefore a requirement that you have teaching during the period you participate in the program. It is assumed that the participants are employed at NTNU throughout the program and have the necessary access to Blackboard.
The development program comprises 200 hours of work and covers the requirements in the Regulations for employment and promotion in teaching and research positions: https://lovdata.no/dokument/SFE/forskrift/2006-02-09-129. It is therefore important that participation in the program and how it is integrated with other duties at the department are discussed and agreed upon with the immediate supervisor (ref. Personnel regulations for scientific positions, part III - 7.3b).
Themes for the individual meetings will be published prior to each meeting.
