  Description   Appointments   Back  
Instructors are experts in their fields, but most have never learned how to teach. Some people think great teachers are born, not made; this is an unfortunate misconception. Anyone can learn how to be an engaging and inspiring instructor. This course aims to give you the most helpful tools for bringing your teaching to the next level – whether you are an absolute novice or already have some teaching experience.
This course will give you a broad toolbox for motivating and activating students. You will learn when students are motivated and what a wide palette of possibilities there is when it comes to activating and motivating students. Engaging students requires building a good relationship to them, giving them a “why” for everything you do, and activating them with purposeful, clear assignments. There is no one correct way to engage students – instead, you can choose methods that work for you and your students.
In this half-day virtual course, we will work through the most important ideas on this topic, focussing mainly on their relevance for the practice of teaching online and offline. No matter your background, no matter what kind of course you will teach, you should walk away from this course with concrete new ideas for engaging your students.
Participants foster trust and positive regard in their relationships with students; they help students understand why the subject matter is relevant; and they use various fitting methods in order to regularly activate and engage students.
