Research shows that team coaching can improve the work environment

Conversations between managers and employees are at the core of a method that can improve both the work environment, the wellbeing and presentation in the workplace. The method has been developed by our researchers who believe that group discussions on risk assessment are a simple way to prevent risks in the organisational and social work environment.

“Didactics is a powerful tool when reflecting about one's own teaching”

Didactics, or the doctrine of teaching, is a powerful tool for teachers at all education levels to reflect about their own teaching. This also applies to teachers in higher education, where knowledge, democracy and participation should be key words. This is the opinion of Johannes Rytzler, Senior Lecturer in teaching and learning at Mälardalen University.
