Teaching at university

The University of Tartu has 15,000 students and more than 1,500 academic staff. We value, support and recognise good teaching. In developing teaching and instructional skills of academic staff we rely on good practices of teaching. In order to develop and make sense of teaching, university lecturers have the opportunity to participate in trainings, share experiences in learning communities, participate in development programs and receive advice on teaching from academic developers and instructional designers.
