UTQ Module - Teaching & Evaluating
In this module we will address a couple of themes that have to do with teaching students in Higher Education. Students who are active learners are more engaged and have more fun. Compared to passive learners they are more successful in finishing their studies. To learn actively, we need to make sure that teaching enables this. In this module we will give you some tips and show examples how facilitate students’ learning, to align your teaching methods with your learning outcomes and what good teachers do. Your own teaching practice will be central during the module.
