Courses

Lecturing and Presenting in Engineering

Informed by contemporary research on teaching engineering, participants design and deliver lessons for specific audiences. This course is relevant for teaching assistants and those who intend to make teaching science or engineering part of their career, in a formal or informal way.

Supervising Students in Projects

The combination of practical and reflective activities in this course provide participants with evidence-informed teaching skills for supervising and evaluating students working on projects.

Teaching problem solving

Problem solving is a core engineering skill. This course explores relevant heuristics, epistemologies, metacognitive skills and evidence-informed teaching strategies for developing problem solving skills that transfer from paper-based exercises to complex, real world engineering situations.

Learning and collaboration in projects

This course addresses the theoretical and practical basis of learning and how to facilitate learning through projects. Active exploration of models, contexts and tools used in project-based learning will help you to develop cognitive and collaboration skills applicable to any project-based context.

Learning and managing in projects
