Our services are inspired by and based on insights gained from up-to-date research on teaching and learning methods in higher education. We work as researchers and, thus, contribute to numerous research projects. Our main areas of research include the professionalization of teaching and faculty development, instructors' subjective theories on diversity, motivation in the initial stages of studying at university, evaluation of teaching, and development of teaching competencies. We are currently also involved in teaching and examination matters at several faculties. This allows us to effectively connect research and teaching in order to enhance the strategies for academic teaching and faculty development.
