We work with municipalities, county councils, government agencies and the business community in many different ways.
Internationalisation of schools
The Centre for Professional Development and Internationalisation in Schools (information in Swedish) works to ensure that internationalisation is a concrete reality in schools. Courses, seminars and conferences are arranged in Sweden and abroad, and tailored continuing education is provided for individual teachers, teams of teachers, schools and municipalities.
Skills development and contract education
The Department of Education works with government agencies, the business community, municipalities and county councils, and offers courses for skills development and contract education.
Praktiknära forskning - Utveckling Lärande Forskning (ULF)
Uppsala universitet har tillsammans med universiteten i Göteborg, Umeå och Karlstad fått regeringens uppdrag att planera och genomföra en försöksverksamhet som ska bidra till stärkt vetenskaplig grund i lärar- och förskollärarutbildningarna samt i skolan.
Forum för Samverkan (Forum for Community Engagement) shall contribute to mutually enriching knowledge exchange between municipalities/preschools/schools and researchers at Uppsala University. The goal is to ensure that schools are based on a scientific foundation and proven experience in practice.
Study guidance and school placement
The Study Counsellors and School Placement Coordinators for Teacher Training Programs (VFU) work with students, some twenty subject departments, 17 participating municipalities and Region Gotland. Study guidance helps student teachers plan their study track and the VFU organisation has overarching responsibility for VFU issues in the teacher education programmes.
