'Supermentoring' of assistant professors' teaching

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Aarhus University offers a mandatory pedagogical training program for assistant professors, required in
order to obtain tenure at a Danish university. At Business and Social Sciences, this program is
supplemented by voluntary observation and (first of all formative) supervision of the assistant professors’
teaching practice. This offer is given is (i) because many young university teachers face problems putting
pedagogical theory into practice – even though the program mentioned is practice-oriented, and (ii)
because many of them (partly due to (i)) lack self-confidence as to teaching. The presentation will discuss
the theoretical framework of the supervision given and compare it to other supervision models.
Furthermore it will address the need of working with supervision in a SOTL context. Attendees will be
activated through discussion of short prototypical cases. A possible – and desired – outcome of the
presentation is the forming of an interest and research group within the field of supervision
