The Education Day was a success!

There is great interest in how to ensure that young students get off on the right foot when they begin their studies in natural sciences. This year’s Education Day was a success and will become a recurring event at Natural Sciences.

How do we ensure a good transition for students who enrol in a natural science programme at our faculty? 

This question was the main topic of the Education Day, which had the theme "From pupil to student", and it was a question that brought the faculty together. All the departments were represented at the lively discussions about the transition to studying at university and how Natural Sciences can best support this transition.

“It was lovely to see so many people participating in this year’s theme because it’s important that we support the transition from pupil to student,” says Kristine Kilså, Vice-dean for education.  

Gathering knowledge and experiences

The Education Day was held in the afternoon of Friday 18 March, and in addition to discussions and exchanges of experience, the programme included presentations and workshops.

"It’s an important day for Natural Sciences because it brings the whole faculty together and gives us an opportunity to discuss topics central to our programmes. We now look forward to working on how we can facilitate this transition for students, including in how we organise our teaching. This is will be an ongoing process on our part and will also be a topic in this year's quality assurance work," explains Kristine Kilså. 

The Education Day will become a fixed tradition at Natural Sciences and will have a new theme each year.
