Centre for Teaching and Learning
The Centre for Teaching and Learning (UPC) has the overall task of promoting pedagogical development and research in higher education at Umeå University and to support teachers in developing the use of ICT in learning. We are also responsible for the university’s joint initiatives in these areas.
We are an independent centre with our own board and hosted by the Faculty of Arts. The board consists of eight members, one member appointed by each of the four faculty boards, and three student representatives; a chairperson is appointed by the dean of the Faculty of Arts.
We work in collaboration with individual teachers, departments, programme leadership, faculty boards and other units within the university management and the university administration.
