Orientation on Teaching and Training Practice

ELS59906

About this course

In this course, students will apply their educational skills in a real-life situation (small internship/practical). These practical experiences can be obtained in a secondary school, an institute for vocational education, higher education or non-formal education. Educational skills refer to either teaching/training skills, or educational development skills. As such, the practical experience does not have to be related to teaching. Parallel sessions at university in which students meet the teacher and their peers support their preparations and reflections. Moreover, these sessions are used to expand students' knowledge and skills on working in the field of education.

After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:

  • Formulate learning goals: one learning goal related to their professional development in the field of education, and one learning goal related to the type of task that needs to be fulfilled during the practical experience
