Module 1 | You as a teacher


How do we learn? And looking at what we want students to learn, how then, should we be teaching?

Course description

Key module

During this module you will get acquainted with the key elements of a student-centered learning environment. We will discuss why this is an environment that inspires students to learn and what you as a teacher can do to create it. Through several cases we will also discuss the boundaries of your role as a teacher, and what referral options there are at this faculty, in cases like that.
