MicroLab: How to lecture with impact

Have you always wanted to increase the attention and motivation of your students during your lecture? Then join this MicroLab!

In this short blended course you will learn what type of teaching & learning activities you can use to make sure your lectures will have an impact on the students' learning process. A lot of research has been done in the field of brain learning, in this module we will share the latest outcomes with you. For example: how to stimulate students to write effective notes during your lecture. We will also answer the question on how to structure your lecture with a variety of activities and how to implement your plan into practice. The module consists of 3 hours online preparation assignments and a workshop of half a day. The workshop really focusses on the idea to prepare you to try out an activity in one of your own lectures.

After following this MicroLab you will be able to:
- Select active teaching and learning activities that match the objectives of your lecture, target group and group size;
- Develop a lesson plan for your lecture which consists of a variety of teaching and learning activities;
- Implement a teaching activity in one of your lectures;
