MicroLab - How to Lecture with Impact

In this MicroLab you work on creating an inclusive classroom environment in which students, regardless of their backgrounds (for example nationality, ethnic background, gender, physical health, social class, previous education), feel involved and are able to show their talents.The topic of inclusive teaching will be approached from three different angles: the student’s perspective, (possible) teacher’s biases and culturally responsive teaching. In preparation for the MicroLab, you will be provided scientific insights on diversity and inclusion in higher education and a preparatory assignment. During the MicroLab session you work on your specific case together with the other participants.
