Hochschuldidaktisches Zentrum Sachsen (HDS)
The "Modul 1" course is the first of three offered by HDS to support lecturers in higher education who want to improve their academic teaching and course-planning skills. This is the first time the module has been offered in English.
The three-day introductory workshop focused on the learning and teaching processes. Participants discussed how such factors as the lecturer, the student, the institution, the learning environment, and social norms influence these processes. This led to discussing and practicing various methods for adapting and integrating these factors into individual courses.
Modul 1 continues with a peer consultation workshop, peer course visitations, and independent reflection and analysis exercises. A rich diversity of cultures and academic fields among the participants created fertile ground for an open and enlightening exchange of ideas.
