TRAINING RESOURCES

Welcome to the Resources Platform!

On this Resources Platform you will find all the practical information to make your learning journey a success. Below you can find information on the sessions, session descriptions and extra reading materials.

 

Who is this for?

Are you an educator looking to empower your students to make a real difference in the world? Do you want to develop innovative and entrepreneurial mindsets among your students?

Do you want to support educators in their journey and equip them with competences and tools to foster impactful teaching practices across disciplines?

 

Profiles include but not limited to (assoc.) professors lecturers, curriculum designers, educational advisors, or PhD students across different disciplines who are interested in developing more innovative and engaging teaching practices that help students become more impactful.

Learn about the importance of teaching for impact and how to empower students to be changemakers in their academic and professional work. Create a plan to embed more impactful teaching practices. Through a series of engaging workshops and seminars, you’ll explore various modules that will enhance your teaching approach and inspire your students to create meaningful impact.

Through using the resources of the Educators for Impact Training Programme, you can:

  • Enhance your ability to guide students in creating real-world value.
  • Expand your impact beyond the classroom.
  • Implement your learnings in your teaching through Personal Application Projects (PAPs) exercises.

 

Practical Information

How to use this platform

Under sessions materials you will be able to find all the content. Start your journey by completing the self-assessment survey and work through the materials from top to bottom. For each session you will also find recommended learning material to supplement to information from the session slides.

If possible, embark on this journey together with peers and exchange your thoughts and work on the PAP exercises.

Note for facilitators: The session overview files are a guide for facilitators and will outline the learning outcomes for each session. We recommend you to complement the materials with your own and to invite guest speakers on some of the topics for seminars and/or workshops.

Suggested pace

We suggest learners to have 1-2 sessions a week, which will bring the total of the program to 6 weeks. This will allow the learners enough time to work on the PAP exercises (roughly 1 per week). The estimated time to complete the full program will be around 10 hours – 15 hours (including PAP exercises).

Note for facilitators: We recommend you to start with an introduction session to provide learners with an overview and expectations of the training and finish with a final reflection session in which the learners also present their PAPs.

Teaching Toolkit

Download the Teaching Toolkit for an overview of the program structure and module overviews.

Personal Application Projects

Personal Application Projects (PAPs) are central to the Educators for Impact Training Programme. We recommend each participant to use the PAP exercises to implement the learnings in their own teaching & lectures.

Note for facilitators: Throughout the programme, each participant should provide details about their PAP, which they will present in a final session of the programme. We also recommend you to organise group discussions for participants to discuss their PAP every 2 week, you can find the guidelines below.
