What is the format of teaching and learning?

The format of teaching and learning can be lectures, tutorials, presentations, or workshops. The format needs to support diverse learners and challenge-based learning. Consider utilizing teamwork and embedding real work life challenges into the format.

Schedule

Schedule

What is the concrete schedule?

Regarding the schedule of the course it needs to be established where and when will the course take place. What is the duration of the course? Additionally, divide daily/weekly/monthly tasks or projects and be transparent about flexibility and possible changes on the schedule. Make sure the schedule is always available and updated.

Narrative

Narrative

What is the story?

Stories create a sense of meaning and even fellowship. If you create a successful narrative around the course, it is more likely for students to work harder and have a strong motivation to learn as a team as they share the same cause and goal.

Places

Places

Where does the teaching and learning take place?

Think about physical classrooms and lecture halls but also online learning. Can students learn outside teaching hours? What opportunities there are outside the university facilities? Keep in mind that the place (physical/online) needs to be accessible and clear for students.

Workspace

Workspace

Where can students work?

Workspaces need to be easily accessible, provide a Wi-Fi connection, as well as chairs and tables. Preferably these spaces should be located on university premises. You can also think about other innovative and creative workspaces, if applicable to the course.

Experiences

Experiences

What are the experiences delivered to students?

Experiences in learning create effective outcomes; students are more likely to view the learning process as exciting and meaningful. Get students to participate, create, brainstorm, and connect with each other to increase motivation and value of the course.
