Would you like to develop yourself further in designing an active learning environment or giving active lectures? This course, based on both theoretical frameworks and best practices, gives you ideas and insights that you can immediately apply in your educational setting.

Although teaching large groups is not always perceived easy, it’s still often used as an educational form. And done well, it can be quite effective.

During the first training day, the following questions will be discussed: How do you keep the students' attention at the lecture? How do you activate a large group? How do you know if the students understand what you are explaining? How can you optimally teach students about your instruction and materials? Who are your students and how are the dynamics in a large group?

On the second day of the course, you have the opportunity to practice a mini-lecture on which you will receive feedback from the trainer and the other participants.

In this training the following specific skills are discussed and practiced:

  • designing active teaching for large groups
  • giving active lectures
  • motivating and activating students
  • asking and answering questions
  • use of technology in large groups
  • large group dynamics
