The ILUKS knowledge base contains
research and experience based knowledge
on student active teaching methods
The ILUKS planner lets you design and plan lessons in a flexible and dynamic way, alone or in collaboration with other students.
About the iluks project
ILUKS is a research and development project
funded by The Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills & the University of Bergen.
ILUKS – Knowledge Base is developed according to the principle that teachers’ professional development is based on both research-based knowledge and experience-based knowledge.
In the knowledge base, you will gain access to relevant research articles with descriptions of teaching designs and student-active teaching methods that have been taught in school and researched.
The knowledge base also contains an overview of several teaching resources and examples of learning designs developed and tested by teachers and student teachers. In addition, you will find resource pages with digital tools that are openly available and other teaching resources that can be used when planning lessons and teaching.
ILUKS learning design tool
The ILUKS planner is a research-based, digital learning design tool designed for planning lessons in a flexible and dynamic way. It provides possibilities for sharing learning designs and giving and receiving feedback on designs. The ILUKS planner can be used individually or in collaboration with teacher students and schoolteachers. It can support teacher students active learning processes when learning how to teach or it can be used to support an inquiry-based approach for developing and improving teaching in a professional learning community.
The tool has been developed by researchers at UiB, SLATE, Centre for the Science of Learning and Technology and the Department of Education and have been tested in collaboration with teacher students at the University of Bergen, the University of South-Eastern Norway, and schoolteachers in Norway. The ILUKS planner is developed as part of the ILUKS project, funded by the Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skill, the programme for student active learning and the University of Bergen.
About the ILUKS project
ILUKS is a research and development project funded by The Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills – programme for student active learning and the University of Bergen. The goal of ILUKS is to contribute to more student-active learning in teacher education, better practical training for teacher students, and that student teachers learn to work inquiry-based developing and improving their own teaching.
In the ILUKS project, we develop student active teaching seminars and research-based digital tools that supportstudent teachers’ professional development and student active learning. The digital learning design tool – the ILUKS Planner – gives student teachers the opportunity to digitally design and share lesson plans. Through the ILUKS digitalknowledge base, students gain access to relevant research and experiential knowledge about student active learning and lesson planning.
The use of the digital solutions is integrated in a new course on student active learning and the prototype are subject to multiple trials in collaboration with student teachers at the University of Bergen, the University of South-Eastern Norway, and teachers in continuing education at the University of Agder and schoolteachers mentoring student teachers during practicum.
