Course description

This course is dealing with the most widely used educational method: lecturing. Lecturing is primarily a one-directional teaching method, which, when used too simply, has only limited effect on the learning of the student. However, there are many ways to improve the effects.

The central theme in this training is practicing your lecture skills. Therefore we work in small groups, preferred amount of 5 participants. The course is given in English.
