"Teaching Through Research & Imparting Evidence-Based Knowledge Through Teaching"

Teaching in higher education or academia should promote critical thinking on the basis of evidence-based knowledge gain & transfer. Different media, methods & environments can be employed according to group sizes and specified learning outcomes. This process of "Constructive Alignment" needs to be regularly evaluated. The list below includes (a) courses & lectures that I am/have teaching/taught & (b) didactic courses I took for my professional development in higher education:


International Certificate of Teaching in Higher Education

 

Higher education shifts from teaching to learning. Lecturers at universities require professional teaching skills that stimulate sustainable learning fostering evidence-based decision making. Various learning settings at universities (e.g. lectures, seminars, webinars, tutorials, lab work) enable different teaching strategies resulting in different learning outcomes. The list below includes didactic-courses I took for professional teaching development in academia (240 hours):  

  • Learning and Teaching at Universities: Psychological Background and Implications
  • How to Make Lectures more Stimulating for Learning Processes
  • Speaking Skills in Higher Education: Ready for Comprehension not Printing
  • How to Plan and Structure Courses at Universities
  • How to Assess Competencies in Higher Education
  • Appealing and Efficient Methods of Teaching for Seminars, Courses, Workshops and Lectures
  • How to Navigate Efficient and Productive Meetings
  • Leading Skills and Coaching A (basics)
  • Leading Skills and Coaching B (advanced)
  • How to be a good Supervisor
  • Developing a Structured Teaching and Learning Portfolio
  • Super and intervision During own and Colleagues' Lectures
