Education at Learning in Health Care Contexts

Learning in Health Care Contexts (LHCC) is engaged in teaching at all educational levels – bachelor, master and doctoral – and in teacher training/faculty development both at Karolinska Institutet and elsewhere.

Undergraduate level

We are involved in teaching the Psychometrics and Individual Differences course in the psychology programme at KI. We also teach at the Scandinavian College of Naprapathic Manual Medicine.

Master's level

LHCC has been actively involved in several courses in the Master's Programme in Medical Education at KI, teaching research methodology and courses on educational development. Along with supervising master's students from the programme in medical education, we regularly supervise students from the medical and dental programmes in their degree projects and the psychology programme in their master's theses.

Doctoral level

At the doctoral level we are involved in a variety of courses offered to PhD students at KI, including for example courses on scientific communication in different contexts. We are also responsible for the Introduction to Medical Education Research course.  

Terese Stenfors is also a member of the steering group for the Doctoral programme in Health Care Science. We have several PhD students in our team and co-supervise students at other departments and universities.

Research level

The members of LHCC teach in faculty development courses, for example courses for teachers and researchers directed towards teaching, learning and supervision, including Future Education Leaders and Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

Members of LHCC are also involved in teaching at Stockholm University.

Furthermore we have experience of supervising degree projects for medical interns.

As learning is one of our favourite concepts in LHCC, we not only conduct research on learning, but also help improve education by developing systems for assessment, quality improvement and feedback, as well as through evaluation of new innovative teaching and learning methods.

We are happy to explore new teaching collaborations or supervision opportunities.
