Teaching is not simply transmitting content knowledge, but also organising the steps that lead to understanding and to successful assimilation of knowledge. In four consecutive sessions, course participants learn about teaching and learning and immediately practice the theory during microteaching sessions. The fifth session is dedicated to bringing everything together by designing and implementing an effective lesson plan.

At the end of this course the students should be able to:

  • Apply some basic principles of curriculum development.
  • Define learning goals for their own teaching activities.
  • Distinguish between learning goals and the teaching approaches used to attain them.
  • Choose appropriate and relevant teaching experiences to attain the defined learning goals.
  • Design teaching sequences that aim to attain the defined learning goals.
  • Design summative assessments that correspond to the defined learning goals (curriculum alignment)
  • Develop formative assessments that can be effectively integrated into teaching sequences.
