This workshop adresses doctoral and postdoctoral researchers who are interested in university level teaching or will start teaching at a university (e.g. supervising lab courses, giving exercises, seminars or lectures) within the next time. Many questions may rise when teaching in a lecture hall, a seminar, exercises or lab courses for the very first time:
How can I get into teaching?
How to prepare myself and the lesson/course?
How do I want to be perceived by the students?
What are my and what are the students’ expectations?
How to design the lesson/course?
What typical and critical situations can arise?
By adressing these and other important questions the workshop will focus on the first steps towards an individual teaching profile and a learner-supportive preparation of lessons/courses.
Topics of the workshop:
- Individual teaching style and role change
- Self and time management for university level teachers
- Conditions and cirumstances of university level teaching
