Although independence and personal initiative are considered key competencies in academia, teaching at university level does often amount to the transfer of knowledge from an expert (the lecturer) to a passively absorbing audience (the students). Participants of this course will get to know various activating methods and teaching strategies, which encourage students to study autonomously and self-determined. A strong focus will be set on the appropriate use of these methods: for which objectives, in which course context and for which target group can a method be applied? Furthermore, participants will have time and opportunity to practice the instruction of several methods.
You have to register for the 5th International Research Workshop to participate in this course.
