Module 4 | Motivating your student(s)

How do you boost the competence of your students by getting them in the right mindset? How do you give feedback that inspires? How do you challenge students to think and find answers themselves?

Course description

An ideal student shows a lot of initiative and intrinsic motivation. Unfortunately, not all students show this trait on every subject. So what can you do to motivate your students?

Target group

This module is best combined with Module 2a. This module is compulsory for TA’s (student-assistants and PhD’s) and is part of the DOP for teachers 4. 
All modules are open for everyone who is teaching at the FNWI, so for example for teachers 3 and 4, tutors and teaching assistants (PhD’s and student assistants). Not sure which module suits your learning objectives best? Please send an email to tlc-training-science@uva.nl.
