Education at Lifelong Learning in Health Care Contexts

Lifelong Learning in Health Care Contexts (LLiHCC) 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 in KI's Division of Physiotherapy and at the Scandinavian College of Naprapathic Manual Medicine.

Master's level

LLHiCC 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 and courses in teaching and learning..

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.

Faculty and professional level

The members of LLiHCC 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 LLiHCC 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 LLiHCC, 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.
