Educational training for teaching assistants


Are you a teaching assistant with one or more teaching responsibilities? If so, this training is made for you!
In this one day training, we together focus on basic didactics:

-How do you prepare a course unit, lesson or other course activity?

-What are specific concerns while teaching? (How do you captivate your audience, how do you activate the students, how do you calm your nerves?)

-How do you support your students? How do you assess students? (if this is one of your responsibilities)

-How do you align with your colleagues?



Once you completed this training you can take part in a return session.

Please note: This training is in English! 

There is also a Dutch version of this training.



-Can describe in their own words how to prepare a course unit or lesson and have tried and tested some of the topics covered;

-Can describe different strategies and issues concerning the implementation of course activities and discuss this with colleagues, in view of implementing this into their own routine;

-Possess the necessary inspiration to design and/or optimize the assessment- and feedback process of their course(unit);

-Can explain how to critically and systematically reflect on their educational skills in order to improve them.


The training is interactive and hands-on. The exchange of each participant’s experience from his/her own educational practice will be the focal point of this training.
