Course description

We start from the Interactive Lecturing Model. Instead of simply “covering content” (the Transmission Lecturing Model), lecturers create conditions that empower students to take a greater responsibility for their own learning. Interactive lecturing is a combination of engaging presentations and active learning methods. In this course we focus on preparing and giving engaging presentations and we touch on the use of active learning methods.

Central in this training is practicing your lecture skills: you give short presentations and get feedback on your performance. Therefore we work in small groups (4 to 6 participants). The course is given in English.

Target group

Wageningen University staff who want to enhance their preparing and giving lectures. Lectures that promote meaningful learning in ways that students find engaging. This course is a very good starter for those new to teaching. This course is an elective course in the UTQ trajectory.


After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • use a lesson plan to prepare and structure your interactive lecture effectively and efficiently;
  • deliver an engaging presentation within an interactive lecture;
  • select active learning methods that align with your learning outcomes;
  • reflect on your own performance and that of colleagues.


  • Develop your own personal focus areas
  • Use your (own) voice
  • Plan and structure your lecture
  • Use non-verbal behaviour
  • Use PowerPoint effectively


The course is based mainly on 'learning by doing' and on 'learning by observing' and discussing the performances and observations.


Documents and knowledge clips in the Brightspace Lecturing.


You get a certificate that you can add to your UTQ portfolio.


Participation is free for Wageningen University & Research staff involved in WU courses.


We consider registration as final. When cancelled within four weeks before the activity starts we will charge your chair group the full price of the course plus costs that have been made in relation with your subscription (can be over €350 per course).
