For students


Most science professionals are required, from time to time, to communicate their knowledge to others; either as teachers or in other contexts. This is, in effect, what didactics is about. As a student, you may include didactics in your studies in the shape of both courses and projects. 

  • A basic course in science didactics (DidG) is held twice a year for students who have an interest in didactics or who are training to become teachers
  • Advanced courses in didactics are offered building upon the basic science didactics course:  A continuing mathematics didactics course and a continuing course in the didactics of natural sciences
  • Master's thesis projects and other projects may be carried out within science didactics
  • Science communication courses are held at regular intervals for students who have  part-time jobs as science communicators or who wish to pursue a science communication career.
