Educators' network on Teams
Do you have tips or experiences you’d like to share, or would you perhaps to hear about the experiences of others in your teaching? Share and learn, discuss and collaborate together with your peers in the educators' network in Teams.
The phrase together we are strong has rarely been as relevant as it is now. We have created the team in Teams with the name “Pedagogiskt nätverk” (pedagogical network) where we hope you will find new collaborations and get both tips and inspiration from others which you can use in your work.
This educators' network in always open. You are always welcome to post, ask questions and comment on other people’s posts. Each week we will create an open chat where you can meet in real time. We will present new activities tied to the network. It could be chat-sessions within a certain area, or streamed content which we discuss.
If you want to work together with a certain group, please get in touch so we can create a channel for that subject.
You are welcome to give suggestions and ideas for discussions in this form for suggestions (only in Swedish).
Who can use the team?
Our aim is to provide access to the team to all those with an educational assignment at KI.
As it stands, because of technical restrictions, the team is only available for those with a KI account. Discussions are only visible for users who are logged in.
You can write posts in both Swedish and English, but if you want the widest possible audience to be able to understand your post, it is best to write in English.
There is a good translation system built into Teams (click on the ··· symbol on the message you want to translate, and then on Translate).
How do I find Teams?
You can log in via the link to Office 365 on Office 365 for staff.
When you have logged in, you will see the Teams icon among your other Office 365 services.
How do I join the team?
There are two ways:
- If you are already logged into Teams, you can click on Join or create a team (on Mac or PC this is at the bottom right-hand side of the screen). If you hover the mouse pointer over GRP_Pedagogiskt nätverk, you could be able to join the team.
- Use the direct link to the team. Note that if you are not already logged in, you will first need to log in.
Once you have registered on the team, it will always be shown among your teams.
What is Teams? How do I use it?
Teams is a part of Microsoft’s Office 365 package and can be used as a platform for asynchonous discussion and collaboration. Within a team in Teams you can many channels for discussion of different subjects. All those who work or study at KI have access to Teams. Teams can be used within a browser or via an app for iPhone, Android, Mac and PC.
If for any reason you need help to reach the team, you can contact Andrew Maunder.
MedEd Lab is an web based series of seminars from the Unit of teaching and learning for educators at Karolinska Institutet. We want to connect to discuss our education. From the nuts and bolts of the everyday teaching to the educational theory, the on-site practices and what medical education can tell us. Together we hope to create a forum for community learning as we are trying out new methods.
There will be approximately one seminar per month and the upcoming subject will be announced in Educators Network in Teams, as well as the Teaching and Learning calendar.
