In the 2020 wrap-up event, we would like to celebrate teaching highlights from ETH faculty. We will hear the stories from multiple recurrent as well as new Refresh Teaching presenters about what went well and why. A great opportunity to look back and celebrate good teaching but also take a sneak peek forward and share ideas within the Refresh Teaching community.What’s YOUR teaching highlight? Share your personal teaching highlight with the Refresh Teaching community before Thursdays event on the following padlet:
Dr. Anouk N'Guyen
Dr. Anouk N’Guyen is a lecturer and teaching coordinator at D-USYS where she leads the project “Data Science @ D-USYS”. This initiative resulted in the new lecture “Environmental Systems Data Science”. Despite current circumstances, an enthusiastic teaching team was able to successfully create a new course within only a few months.
Marlene Mader (D-USYS)
Marlene Mader works at the TdLab at D-USYS and is part of the teaching team for the course “Tackling Environmental Problems” (UPL). UPL is a one-year course for about 150 first-semester Bachelor students, where students learn how to analyse and identify sustainability problems of a Swiss region and how to develop measures to address them in interaction with stakeholders.
Manuel Zeyen is teaching at ETH as a PhD student since 2017. There he supervises alternately exercise classes (ca.20-30 students) in “Physics for physicists and mathematicians” and “Physics for physicians”. Before Corona, this meant teaching in a classroom similar to school and correcting realtively large “series” (problem sheets that students have to solve weekly at home). With Corona, he switched to Zoom online teaching with tandem teaching.
Prof. Peter Chen
Prof. Peter Chen is Professor of Physical-Organic Chemistry at D-CHAB. He has implemented a PiP (Professor-in-Picture) video overlay technology which gives a close simulation of in-person teaching using Zoom, combined with open-source and freeware audio/video programs.
Dr. Rafael Libanori
Dr. Rafael Libanori teaches several courses at the D-MATL, several in teaching teams and will share his personal learnings about student feedback.
