The Unit for Pedagogical development and Interactive Learning (PIL) at the University of Gothenburg
The PIL unit offers an arena for collaboration where the faculties are given opportunities to jointly develop teaching at the University of Gothenburg in accordance with university-wide strategies. The unit’s assignments include, for example, participating in the university’s quality work in order to develop and strengthen the higher education pedagogical competence and ability to vary the teaching methods, to assist the faculties in matters of higher education pedagogy and interactive learning and to announce, prepare and decide on university-wide higher education projects and follow up and document the effects of these initiatives.
In this work, Knowledge Lab has been able to contribute with competencies concerning higher education pedagogical development as well as resources and activities to support it. The PIL unit also refers to the Knowledge Lab when they are unable to assist with support for pedagogical development, for example in more extensive projects.
