This course is intended for university teachers who would like to enrich their understanding of student learning, improve their own teaching practice, and develop ideas for course and class design. Teaching in Higher Education is particularly useful for those working on a BKO portfolio. The course addresses issues directly related to, and often arising from, participants’ own teaching practice.
The course is organized around three main themes:
- Designing a class or a course (writing intended learning outcomes; choosing activities and didactic approaches; assessment and testing)
- Teaching practice: giving lectures, tutorials and supervising students
- Reflecting on teaching experiences
The course consists of seven group sessions, a number of subgroup meetings and peer-visits to classes, and one individual appointment with one of the teachers of the course.
Group and study load
The course is taught in groups of max. 12 participants and requires approximately 125 hours of study, including meetings.
The course will be taught in English and is open to anyone, both non-Dutch and Dutch, who is involved in teaching university students at any level (when all participants speak Dutch fluently, the course will be taught in Dutch).
