Effective use of presentations in academia
- avoid "death by PowerPoint"
Kenn L. Hansen has a Master's degree in rhetoric from the University of Copenhagen. He wrote his master thesis about the use of PowerPoint. As the founder and CEO of EPO he has been training more than 10,000 people since 2005 in the use of PowerPoint across all industries.
During the talk, Kenn L. Hansen will shed lights on the extensive research on presentations (slides), so the participants know exactly how presentations should be applied in academia. The objective is to become acquainted with best practice presentation approach as well as tips and tricks to improve quality.↑
Teaching in 2020 - A Discussion
Meet the other conference participants and discuss teaching in 2020 - and come away with some tips for your own teaching.
Parallel session 1
Workshop 1: How to build your slide deck for academic presentations
Kenn L. Hansen, EPO
The workshop will allow the participants to apply the learnings from the previous keynote. Each participant is encouraged to bring a slide deck and work on a couple of slides, which will receive feedback both from peers and from the speaker and e-learning consultants on what works well, and what could be further improved.
Workshop 2: How to build a flipped classroom
Bjarne Simmelkjær Sandgaard Hansen, PhD, associate professor at the Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics
The advantages of the flipped classroom are many, e.g. increased flexibility for the students, and it allows classes to focus on higher cognitive levels of Blooms Taxonomy. You will get an introduction to the concept of the flipped classroom with practical examples of how this can be done. The workshop includes hands-on exercises with video and quizzes to get you started on building your own flipped classroom.
Inspirational Sessions 1: Zoom Innovations
Ayo Wahlberg, Professor MSO and deputy head of department at the Department of Anthropology.
On the anthropology programme, teachers and teaching assistants have worked innovatively with online teaching. In this session, you will find inspiration for your online teaching within, among other things, group work and collaboration, plenary discussions and how you can use your iPad as a robot.
Workshop 3: Do you miss your whiteboard in your online teaching?
Søren Rosendahl, PhD, professor at Department of Biology and Niels Peter Hvillum, e-learning consultant at IT Learning Centre
A pen/digitizer tablet and online whiteboards enable teachers to do visual explanations when introducing new subjects or answering questions from the students in online teaching.
This workshop will include a live demonstration on how to do this along with considerations about how to build up models, graphs, etc.
The hands-on part of this workshop will use your own teaching as a case for visual development.
How can UCPH take advantage of the positive as well as negative digital learning experiences we have gained during the COVID-19 lockdown and use these going forward? Based on a newly published evaluation report on UCPHs experiences during COVID 19 lockdown, panel members will deliver their take on how UCPH can use the results of the report to strengthen digital learning and education. All participants will have the opportunity to contribute to the discussion.

Parallel Session 2
Inspirational Session 2: Live-broadcast of the podcast Death & Diagnosis
The journalist behind the science podcast "Død & Diagnose" (Death & Diagnosis), Mikkel Andreas Beck and David Pepe Birch perform a live version of the podcast.
In this episode, UCPH teachers Jan Pravsgaard and Adam Bencard talk about epidemics both now and in a historic perspective.
Listen to the session - preferably while taking a walk - and be inspired on how to use podcasting in your teaching.
Inspirational Session 3: We Must Priorities Interaction with the Students if we want to avoid ‘screen fatigue’
Lisbeth Høier, professor, Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences
Professor and award-winning teacher Lisbeth Høier Olsen uses her positive experiences with online teaching from last spring in this fall semester.
Learn how she intends to avoid ‘screen fatigue’ among the students by using different teaching technics and tools in webinars including pre-planned breaks, Sandsteps, drawings, video recordings, running assessments and peer feedback.
Webinar and e-learning experiences from Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology with focus on Structure and variation.
Inspirational Session 4: Online fieldwork
Kirsten Seestern Christoffersen
The lockdown this spring brought severe challenges to field courses in biology. The 5-days, highly compressed field trip in Basic freshwater biology was converted to an online version with video excursion, recorded lectures, quizzes, polls and blended with drive-self and drive-with-the-teachers excursions.
Luckily, the students were rather satisfied with the result. The planning started well in advance by focusing on the learning goals and how to fulfil them. A well-structured course-platform in Absalon and a script including a plan B for the teaching formed the backbone of the teaching. Emphasis was placed on providing a varied, activating and exciting teaching.
Inspirational Session 5: How does digitization influence our academic subject?
Alexandra Andhov, assistant professor at Centre for Private Governance.
The course “DigiLawyer” at the Faculty of Law focuses on how digitization is transforming the legal industry and makes it possible for students to obtain new technological skills. The aim is that law students are able to recognize the potential of technology. Other educators are inspired to reflect upon whether the digitization is affecting their field as well.
Inspirational Session 6: Open Educational Resources and oer.ku.dk
Maria Minard, senior advisor, Education & Students, University Education Data and Systems, Central Administration
The University of Copenhagen has established an OER website, oer.ku.dk, the site is still under development. This session will present the OER concept and the UCPH OER website, as well as we would like to hear your ideas and bring them into the further development of the site.
The vision for the OER platform is to provide an inspiring public online library filled with copyright-cleared high-quality educational resources - free of use for teachers, students and the public.
This session will shortly give an introduction to:
- How you can use OER resources in your teaching
- How to share your own educational videos on oer.ku.dk
- The opportunities for sharing your learning videos with the public, outside UCPH, while ensuring copyright.
Inspirational Session 7: Quizzes embedded in videos - a Kaltura tool
Anne Nørremølle, associate professor at the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine
Students tend to find that specific concepts are difficult to grasp and understand. In the course in Medical Genetics, we have designed several small videos explaining these "hard to crack" concepts. A deep understanding of a concept is facilitated if the students use the concept, e.g. a multiple-choice test. In our course, we offer the students multiple-choice tests on different subjects for self-assessment. Why not combine the best of two worlds, and embed the quizzes in the videos? Luckily Kaltura has a tool exactly for that. The talk will include a Do-It-Yourself manual.
Inspirational Session 8: Take your medical degree remotely from Nykøbing Sjælland
Henrik Bregnhøj, e-learning consultant at Centre for Online and Blended Learning
Pre-corona, from August 2019, the Medicine education started to live-stream all lectures to an extra uptake of students, who are taking the education as interns at hospitals in Region Sjælland. This experience prepared us immensely for the HyFlex teaching that we implemented in August 2020.
In the session, we will look at what we have learned about mainly technical and managerial aspects of HyFlex live-streaming/zooming for the Medicine and other studies at SUND.
Parallel Session 3
Inspirational Session 9: Online active learning platforms: A solution for silent classrooms?
Abbas Jafari, assistant professor at the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine
This projects aimed to record student activation using different platforms to activate the students. The results of this study indicated that the use of online active learning platforms not only increased the participation of the students in oral communication and discussions by 160% but also led to increased learning and course satisfaction.
Inspirational Session 10: Digital studiestart på Humaniora
Louise Hegelund Waaben, academic student adviser at Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies and Maria Charlotte Ansager H Jensen, academic student adviser at Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics
Students in four programs at HUM have tested a study start module developed for Absalon. Experience shows that students use the module both in connection with the start of studies and after. This shows that the students find the module both relevant and interesting - and the evaluation also showed that the students felt more secure towards their first day at university.
Inspirational Session 11: Evaluation of online teaching in spring 2020
Morten Misfeldt, professor and leader of the Center for Digital Education, Department of Science Education and Department of Computer Science, Lasse X Jensen, PhD fellow at the University of Copenhagen and Deakin University, and Ruth Horak, senior advisor, Education & Students, University Education Data and Systems, Central Administration.
In a working group consisting of employees from several faculties, we have taken a closer look at the online teaching in connection with the Covid-19 pandemic in the spring semester 2020.
We have gathered experience with teaching among students and lecturers and regularly publish the results during the autumn The elements of the surveys have been (1) a broad scan of the knowledge already in the organization, (b) five additional questions for the course evaluations for the 2nd semester/block 4 (2020), (c) a questionnaire for teachers (d) a quantitative study of students' experience and (e) a series of qualitative interviews with students and lecturers.
