Letting four educational units from each of the four faculties at Aarhus University co-create an online “one size fits all”-professional development course might sound like a hazardous decision. Both in terms of developing the course due to the many different approaches to professional development across the faculties and in terms of making the course relevant to the diverse group of participants ranging from tutors to professors in all kinds of different subject areas and teaching obligations.

Nevertheless, due to widely rooted project group with representatives from all faculties and a relatively early consensus on the overall framework conditions of the course, the course is now ready for pilot testing. It involves a design where content can be used flexibly according participant’s needs and  aiming at promoting educational ‘design thinking’ among the participants. The development process is inspired by the framework well-known from academic journals including an open call for contribution and a peer-review process and as such the overall development process has been relatively smooth. This paper presents both the underlying framework conditions for developing the course and the actualised design.
