Startsession teaching professionalization of the faculty


To guarantee the quality of education within our faculties (GLW & RWS), we offer all starting PhD students a customized infosession to get to know the curricula of the different study programmes and the teaching concept. This first part of the startsession is specific for PhD students with teaching activities in Rehabilitation sciences and physiotherapy on one hand and Medicine and Biomedical sciences on the other hand. The second part of this startsession is a workshop about the basic didactical skills. This session is obligatory for PhD students who start their PhD on September 1, 2017 or later.
