Teaching Excellence Training for Academic Staff
- Monday 10 January 2022 - Friday 14 January 2022
What is “teaching excellence” in Higher Education? Which different teaching excellence training, promotion and reward schemes exist across Europe? How can a common European teaching scheme look like? The e-NOTE project led by Leiden University seeks to answer these question in cooperation with five partners across Europe.
The European Network on Teaching Excellence invites applications from interested Academic Staff to participate in a five-day intensive training on teaching excellence.
The Training is organised under the auspices of the Erasmus + Strategic Partnership project E-NOTE and will be hosted by the Leiden University in cooperation with the Universities of Charles, Coimbra and Copenhagen. The event will take place online between 10 January 2022 and 14 January 2022 and participants have the flexibility of choosing from the various programme panels.
The focus of the training will be on innovative and effective practices for training teaching excellence in higher education. The event is organised to benefit university management staff, higher education learning and development professionals and teaching staff. The objective of the event is to showcase good case studies of excellence training, including training curricula development and allow participants to gain hands-on experience through practical workshops. These will include demonstrations and simulations on how to develop excellent curricula.
You can't no longer register for the training. The deadline was 10 December 2021
Candidates will be selected based on their professional background and motivation to participate to the event to ensure a diverse group of participants. Participants who followed at least one complete day of training will receive an attendance certificate.
The first day of training is structured around the shared goal of defining teaching excellence and elaborating best practices to set common standards in higher education.
The second day touches upon three im-portant questions and aspects of teach-ing at the BA level:
- How do we ensure equity and inclusion in our classroom, from day 1 of the students’ university experience
- How do we adapt our teaching methodologies to be effective across a diverse cohort of students?
- How do we assess students, broadly and how do we assess them considering their individual needs, diverse background and experiences? Which online assessment methodologies are there available?
The third day of training is focusing on the definition of teaching excellence with regards to postgraduate studies.
The fourth day of training is structured around the shared goal of defining teaching excellence and elaborating best practices to set common standards in higher education.
Our fifth and last day of training provides discussions on the evaluation and reward of teaching excellence.
