Conditions for student learning
All teaching at Uppsala University must be based on a scientific foundation, best practice and sound teaching strategies. The education provided must enable students to develop their knowledge, skills and attitudes, including a scientific and critical approach to their education and future professional activities. During their education the students must acquire a sound knowledge of their particular subject, but they must also be encouraged to take advantage of the breadth of the University from a liberal arts perspective and find opportunities for personal development.All syllabi and teaching must be designed with the aim of facilitating the students’ independent, active learning and their development as responsible students. The subject contents, as well as the educational approach on which the teaching of the subject builds, must have a scientific basis. Sound education depends on teachers and students cooperating and taking joint responsibility for the contents and quality of the education. The teaching climate must be characterised by mutual respect. The University’s staff – teachers and others – must ensure that students have access to understandable information about the organisation and objectives of the teaching, while students must ensure that they take ad-vantage of the information, reflect on it in relation to their own learning and make use of opportunities to give feedback to the teachers.
