DIS Hosts New Faculty Seminar in Stockholm

Last week, DIS hosted its New Faculty Seminar in Stockholm – an exciting step forward toward the inaugural Fall 2016 semester.

Executive Director, Malene Torp, introduced faculty to the organization at whole, and Academic Director, Helle Rytkønen, discussed what it means to teach at DIS. The faculty then participated in a workshop that explored aspects of the DIS model, and brainstormed ways to inspire students in the classroom.

DIS faculty member Janis Granger, who will teach The Vikings and Scandinavian Crime Fiction at DIS Stockholm this fall, presented her experience teaching at DIS Copenhagen and gave examples of how to create a motivational learning environment.

Project Manager for DIS Stockholm Christina Lambertsen, who helped organize and facilitate the event, said the workshop was a great day of knowledge sharing among DIS faculty and staff.

“The curiosity and excitement of the new faculty created a great atmosphere for discussion and learning. The Seminar was a joy to be part of! DIS is excited to work with all these new passionate and talented faculty living in Sweden, and warmly welcome them to DIS.”

After the seminar, the group toasted to the upcoming semester, and were joined by DIS Copenhagen alumni living in Stockholm. The architects, who have worked to design DIS Stockholm, gave a tour of the building and shared their inspiration and creativity of the architecture and design.

DIS is pleased to welcome the DIS Stockholm faculty into the community, and is confident they will create memorable academic experiences for their students, starting this fall semester!
