Training course
For more information

The training will focus on pedagogy for a diverse student population. In your teaching practice you will encounter a wide variety of students, all with their own history, personality and challenges. In order to enable all your students to benefit from your teaching, you will need to deal with these student differences purposefully; but how do you do that? How do you reach all your students?

During this training we will among others discuss these topics: 

  • Awareness of your (implicit) assumptions and associations; 
  • How these assumptions and associations influence your students’ learning; 
  • How to reach all your students; 
  • Knowledge about differentiation in class.

This training is aligned with the UTQ objectives and supports you in working towards your university teaching qualification. You are advised to take the module How to design a course prior to this module.
