On august 15, a delegation from Korea National University of Education came to Linköping University to learn more about Swedish teacher training and Outdoor Education in particular. 

In Korea, there is an interest in how to implement more creative and thematic learning into the education system. Researchers from the National University of Education visited the Swedish Ministry of Education prior to their visit to LiU and also had the opportunity to learn more about Outdoor education and the Swedish school system during a day with school visits. The delegation also met Dr Mattias Arvola at the LiU Dep’t of Computer and Information Science and Spetsa AB with CEO Helene Nord. 

The delegation’s visit follows on from a very successful marketing visit to Seoul by Anders Szczepanski from the Outdoor Education programme and Therese Winder and Susan Gollenia from LiU’s Communications and Marketing Division. The Seoul visit,  which also included a special outdoor pedagogy lecture by Mr Szczepanski at Korea University, took place as part of a four-year project to enhance LiU’s brand in Korea and to attract Korean students to our international master’s programmes.

Researchers overestimate their own honesty

The average researcher thinks they are better than their colleagues at following good research practice. They also think that their own research field is better than other fields. This is shown in a new study at Linköping University.

The students from LiU were given a dream assignment: develop a pressure-resistant device. A device that contains an experiment. And is to be launched into space.

Physical fitness in adolescence linked to less atherosclerosis later

Men who were physically fit when they were young had a lower risk of atherosclerosis almost 40 years later. These findings suggest that atherosclerosis is one of the mechanisms behind the link between physical fitness and cardiovascular disease.
