As a lecturer, you may encounter small-group teaching settings in various stages of your degree programme – for example in the form of seminars, project group supervision or practical groups. This form of teaching requires specific teaching skills. How can you make sure that students in a small group are indeed working, that your students prepare for their classes and that you choose the right assignment or mode of instruction to dovetail with your learning outcomes?

This course will discuss and practise the following specific skills:
- organizing and structuring small-group teaching;
- possible modes of instruction and how to vary these;
- motivating and stimulating students;
- asking and answering questions.


  • 'In this course I learned to set learning goals and organize a seminar effectively.''
  • 'I have learned how to better organize my tutorials.''
