An evidence-based approach to teaching within health


International conference at

Western Norway University of Applied Sciences,

Campus Bergen, Inndalsveien 28, 5020 Bergen

ROOM F117 – Auditorium 15

Wednesday May 31, 2023

The conference will take place at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, Campus Bergen. The conference is open to teachers, students, researchers and others with an interest in evidence-based approach to teaching and evidence-based practice.  The conference will discuss the possibilities and challenges of applying an evidence-based approach to teaching. To be evidence-based simply means to include the best available scientific knowledge in all decisions. Whenever teachers are selecting their topics and their pedagogical approach, the present scientific knowledge should be part of the decision-making process. Such an approach can be challenging, and many questions need to be discussed further, such as

  • What does it really mean to be evidence-based when planning, carrying out and evaluating teaching?
  • Is an evidence-based approach relevant at all educational levels and for all topics?
  • How can we best teach teachers how to use an evidence-based approach to teaching?
