Have you ever considered of trying something new/different/cool?

and gets to play patterns or pass them to others as well as learn to coordinate such patterns with music.
In other words, 100% guaranteed fun!

Come join us during your lunch break! We would like to invite PhDs, Post Docs and other temporary scientific staff to join us during their lunch break. Bring your own lunch, we will get something for afterwards 🙂

This is a great opportunity to talk to people who are in the same situation as you in a relaxed atmosphere. It is a safe space to vent off about any topic that bothers you and simply exchange with other people who are in the same boat as you are.

Hope to see you there!

Take part in the Teaching Cultures Survey

NTNU is taking part in the Teaching Cultures Survey, a survey in which 13 universities across the world participated in early 2019 and a further group of universities are participating in October/November 2019. Like this wider group of universities, NTNU is looking to understand more about how the status of teaching and learning is viewed by the academic community. Following this 2019 survey, NTNU’s aim is to repeat the survey in 2021 and 2023 with all participating universities to track any changes in staff views. It is hoped the survey will provide helpful information about how university teaching is regarded by staff over time.

All academic staff employed by each participating university – from PhD candiates to professors and board members – are invited to take part. Whatever your discipline or career stage, or how central teaching is to your current role, we would be grateful for your views. You can complete the survey regardless of whether you teach at all, are on parental leave, on sabbatical, or are employed part time or full time.

You can find more information about the survey in this leaflet.
