Excellent Learning Through Teaching Excellence
In this course we aim to address the issues that allow experienced teachers to become excellent teachers. In order to do that we will look into the principles of course design, syllabus design and course initiation, presentation and implementation. As well into the nonverbal aspects of excellent teaching, such as voice and speech. An essential aspect of excellent teaching is that teachers and students establish a highly fruitful working relationship. This highly exclusive seminar is a cooperation between University College Roosvelt and the Harvard University 'Derek Bok Center'.
