Teaching with real-world examples
Attaching meaning to what students learn
Becoming a scientist requires students to learn the scientific canon of a field and to develop many different competencies. One way to make things interesting for students is to go beyond the textbook and incorporate real-world examples into your teaching. Ideally, within these examples, students simulate doing the tasks that the teacher (in his life as a researcher) does as part of her/his job. This makes the learning of the student highly relevant and can thus be great motivation to wrap their heads around a topic.
In this Refresh Teaching event, we will hear different implementations and the experiences teachers made with them.
