Flexible One-on-One Consultations for Teaching Staff
- For specific questions and personal concerns that do not fit into a further training workshop
- Increasing the transfer to one’s own teaching practice through in-depth individual advice following participation in a didactic further training
All members of the St. Pölten UAS’ teaching staff can contact LEARN at any time and arrange an individual advice appointment. Consultations are also offered online.
Please feel free to contact a LEARN members of your choice. You can view our areas of expertise below.
Examples of occasions in which to seek advice:
- Advice in the individual design of courses
- Concrete questions or solutions for the subject-specific use of methods
- Discussing challenging situations in teaching and finding possible solutions
- Identifying and planning development steps for one’s own teaching
The objective is to compare the self-assessment of one’s own teaching behaviour to the impressions of a person with didactic expertise.
During a visit in collaboration with LEARN, a member of our didactics teams sits in on one of your classes. Based on an observation sheet (which you draw up together beforehand), you then discuss development potentials and successful elements.
Peer Learning (Learning from Co-Workers)
By inviting colleagues to visit their courses, members of the teaching staff can gain helpful and inspiring impulses for the further improvement of teaching quality: our teachers look each other over the shoulder in designing their courses.
The strongest “aha” effect is achieved when purposefully choosing work shadowing partners from other disciplines. LEARN supports this form of peer learning through the provision of materials on how to carry out this format.
For both individual advice and work shadowing, we have a selection of experts with different areas of expertise available for you:
- Basics of higher education didactics, teaching and learning theory, digital learning resources and blended learning, presentation styles conducive to learning, presentation techniques, didactic self-reflection, handling of challenging situations, innovative course design
- Basics of higher education didactics, handling of challenging situations, innovative course design, student-centred learning, activating teaching methods, feedback methods and establishment of a constructive feedback culture in courses, peer learning
Christian F. Freisleben
- Basics of higher education didactics, creative methods and student engagement, use of digital teaching and learning resources, inverted classroom, portfolio work, writing coaching, implementation of special contents (e.g., service learning, education for sustainable development)
