Overview

Traditionally, teachers are not trained to teach professional courses. Thus, they learn even the essential principles of teaching through experience, ‘on the job’. This leads to a less than satisfactory in-class learning experience for most students in many courses, except if the teacher has a natural orientation to teaching. This course is aimed to introduce the essentials of facilitation of student learning (‘teaching’) in an interesting way to any teacher of professional courses, with a special focus on engineering. Further, education is a vast, old area of research, with rigorous, evidence-based knowledge that is useful for the facilitation of learning. However, the knowledge is not in an easily accessible form for teachers without experience in education research. This course also aims to begin bridging that gap, by appropriately introducing research in education to engineering teachers.
