Academic teaching is one of the greatest challenges in the daily work of a scholar. The ability to conveying ideas, theories and methods is indispensable to university education. Providing students with information in a clear and direct manner is as important as interacting with students within the lecture or the seminar.
This seminar will equip participants with the ability to provide an inspirational teaching concept and will move from the idea to session planning, method structures, interaction and a concise seminar proposal. The seminar will discuss methods of engaging teaching in the classroom and the challenges of diverse class settings and inequalities in the classroom.
