Teaching in the International classroom
Teaching in the International Classroom for Life Sciences teachers. This is a research-based and multidisciplinary course that draws on educational science and applied linguistics (second language acquisition, language attitude research). The course has the very practical aim of equipping academic staff to take on the challenges of university teaching in an international context. The course is organised for Life Sciences teachers every year.
The course will be given during four morning or afternoon sessions. Interaction is a key element during this workshop and input from all participants is highly appreciated.
For more information, please contact Kirsten Boersma-van Nierop, MSc.
