Planning your teaching
Discuss potential teaching ideas with your supervisor first and then with the director of undergraduate studies who will inform you of available teaching options. Your teaching may begin with individual seminars or lectures and become more extensive in a later step. This will depend on the general teaching needs at the department.
Contact the responsible colleagues to enquire about teaching opportunities:
For teaching first and second cycle courses at the department:
Rikard Bengtsson (rikard [dot] bengtsson [at] svet [dot] lu [dot] se)
Daniel Alfons (daniel [dot] alfons [at] svet [dot] lu [dot] se)
For bookings and timetables:
Kristina Gröndahl Nilsson (kristina [dot] grondahl_nilsson [at] svet [dot] lu [dot] se)
For submitting course syllabi, getting access to courses on Canvas, and submitting reading lists:
Helen Fogelin (helen [dot] fogelin [at] svet [dot] lu [dot] se)
Doctoral students may act as supervisors for undergraduate thesis authors, but usually not above intermediate or bachelor levels. It is advisable to take on supervision after having gained some initial teaching experience. If you are interested in supervising, please consult first with your supervisor and then with Daniel Alfons.
The courses in higher education teaching and learning are mandatory for everyone who teaches at Lund University.
