This paper presents faculty-wide Educational framework with potential to bring about change in education. This was made possible through bottom-up teamwork, discovering underlying reasons for chosen educational approaches at the faculty, enabling educational discussions between colleagues. All colleagues at the departments were encouraged to review educational ideas and methods that they had in common, or wanted to develop.

Uniting around educational methods, specified and published as educational frameworks, facilities continuous educational collaboration and development, and improves mutual understanding in discussions and collaborations with students, which can affect scholarship of teaching and learning as well as bringing about institutional change.
