Weight will be placed on pedagogical skills. The evaluation of the
candidate will be based on documented pedagogical material, including
pedagogical education/training, the presentation of academic work and
experience from supervising masters-level students and doctoral
candidates, and teaching as well as other pedagogical matters. The
evaluation will consider both the quality and the scope of the material.

Academic staff who are employed without having a formal pedagogical
qualification in university-level teaching and who are unable to
