Political Platform The Science Party
The Science Party is party-politically independent. We have the knowledge and skill to make UiO better for the students. This year we are working for proper execution of digital exams, effective teaching, and more pleasant campuses.
We demand responsible execution of digital exams!
UiO’s ambitions for digitalisation of exams are admirable. However, the digitalisation must be carried out responsibly. All exam problems must be suited for the exam format, exam supervisors must be adequately trained, and the special examination arrangements offered to students who require them must be improved.
The rector team of UiO has promised better quality teaching. The Science Party will keep them to that promise. We demand free field projects, lab courses and practice from first year of study. Applying varied methods of teaching that help the students to make informed choices is important. All personnel in teaching positions must be competent in pedagogy and didactics related to their field of study, and teaching should be peer reviewed.
Students who thrive on campus learn better and perform better. The Science Party wants accessible atriums, gardens that promote biodiversity, improved recycling stations, and crosswalks in heavily trafficked places on campus. Maps of UiO’s buildings must be improved to make navigating campus easier, and all rooms must have open activity calendars.
