The programme comprises two days of training: a start-up day and a follow-up day ten weeks later. The programme includes an introduction to the Utrecht teaching model and a didactic skills training. The focus will be on how to motivate students, the range of activating teaching formats, and the role of testing. Furthermore, the programme will offer you the chance to get the trainer’s feedback on your own teaching activities as well to participate in peer-to-peer coaching activities with other participants. The programme is taught both in Dutch and in English.
Start to Teach is open to all staff members who have little or no teaching experience. Doctoral candidates with teaching tasks are also welcome to join the programme. It is important that participants give education to groups of students during the teaching period in which they participate in the Start to teach programme. This programme is offered four times each year and starts at every teaching period. Registration must be done two weeks before the programme starts.
