Lillehammer University College

HiL, Høgskolen i Lillehammer

Since the start in 1971, our academic activities have been growing steadily, and we now offer a wide range of professional and vocationally oriented programmes, plus a selection of traditional academic university subjects. From the start the university college also became a testbed for new ideas in teaching which were both academically and pedagogically different from those at the traditional institutions of higher education in Norway. The college still bears the marks of these ideas. Problem-solving, group work, project work, and close student-teacher contact are characteristics which the college has maintained also in the area of computer assisted teaching.
