Do you expect to teach a course or some of its components at either the Bachelor’s or Master’s level in the 2021 Autumn Semester? Are you thinking how to recognize and address the needs and expectations of a diverse body of local and international students? This four-semester course will help you to improve internationalization through enhancing your teaching competencies, including designing courses in English and facilitating the learning of international students.

The course Effective Teaching for International Students: A Professional Development Course is designed for faculty members — teachers and doctoral students — from Masaryk University, who expect to teach a course or some of its components at either the Bachelor’s or Master’s level in the 2021 Autumn Semester. 

This course consists of the 4 modules (Autumn Semester 2020–Spring Semester 2022) and uses active learning as the key method through which participants are to develop knowledge and skills. Active learning means that participant teachers will predominantly learn through ways other than listening to session leaders and reading assigned materials. During the course, session leaders will create a range of opportunities for participants to formulate their own understanding of the concepts being studied, to try new teaching and learning methods, to collaborate with peers in small groups and to exchange feedback. Further to this, participants will be encouraged and aided in the implementation of active learning in their own classes.
