On 1 January 2020, a new ministerial order on the job structure at Danish universities became effective. The order stipulates that the university is responsible for ensuring that all academic staff who teach will need to continuously acquire necessary pedagogical-didactic competencies throughout their careers. It is also specified that the university must have a plan for this. In continuation of this, Universities Denmark have worked on a joint national framework for recognising university pedagogical merit. Aarhus University is now starting to work on that.
