Course aim
This Summer School course intends to help you develop skills and attitudes that will enable your students to learn more effectively: - You create assessable and for students 'embraceable' learning outcomes for your course that will guide you when developing educational materials, teaching activities and assessments. - You design learning activities, based on your personal view on learning and teaching, that will help your students to achieve the intended learning outcomes of your course. - You facilitate yourself and your students to ask, give, receive and use constructive and motivating feedback on products and behaviour, both orally and in written form. - You adapt your teaching style to the type of learning activity and the needs of your students. - You deliberately use activating strategies in your teaching. - You are familiar with present-day educational technology tools so that you can decide whether and how you would implement these in your courses. - You direct your own professional development by exploring your vision on higher education. - You articulate and monitor assessable personal learning outcomes for your professional development.
