A practical introduction to teaching
A practical introduction to teaching is an optional theme course and is very useful for academic staff who not yet have required much experience in teaching at university level.
A practical introduction to teaching is a hands-on, practical introduction to teaching in higher education. The course will demonstrate and let you practice student-oriented ways of lecturing and holding seminars, labs or tutorials. It will also give practical advice on dealing with challenging situations in the classroom and disruptive students, and give you guidance on using digital tools in your teaching and assessment with the student's learning in focus. The course is aimed at colleagues new to teaching in higher education, but more experienced teachers looking for inspiration and new ideas are also welcome to apply.
