Topic outline


    The goal of the teaching practice is to develop participants' teaching skills. In the course you have an opportunity to try new approaches or teaching methods under guidance and receive feedback on your teaching. You will observe your peers' teaching and learn from them. When you reflect on your and your peers' teaching you develop your teaching competence and yourself as a teacher.

    The course begins with a kick-off meeting on the 10th January 2023, 9.00 - 12:00.
    Place: Top Lounge, Otakaari 1

    The schedule of the group meetings will be agreed in the kick-off meeting.

    • Kick-off session (Tuesday 10.1.2023)
