    The PhD Council of 2015 would like to thank our predecessors for their efforts and accomplishments in 2014. Without their collective work, supported by their predecessors and the input and participation of the Faculty of Law’s PhD fellows, it would have been very hard for us to take on these new roles. We are privileged to maintain what has already been built up and honored with the task of promoting continued improvements for the PhD fellows at the Faculty.

Du you wish to learn more about teaching?

The University offers courses for PhD fellows that lead to "Pedagogisk basiskompentanse" (basic pedagogical competence). One half of the course programme consists of a joint module for all PhD fellows. The other half consists of several smaller modules, which you can choose from a large pool of available modules.

Read more about the course at its webpage, which includes a very helpful course calendar.

PS: The course (and its websites) is sadly only offered in Norwegian. It should be possible to take these courses without being able to speak Norwegian fluently, as it is accepted that you speak in English during discussions and group work. However, a good passive understanding of Norwegian is requiered.
