Are you seeking fresh strategies and new inspiration for student engagement in your teaching? In this hands-on workshop you will get the chance to explore different digital learning technologies for student engagement and classroom activites. The activities will provide you with information that can support your feedback dialogue with students. We will demonstrate examples and you will get the chance to explore and design your own learning activities for students.

  • Assignment with personal feedback in Absalon – e.g. recording the feedback in a sound- or video
  • Activating students in lecturing – use Sendsteps to create interactive sessions with your students. Students can respond from mobile phones or laptop. This can be used for large classes also.
  • Peer feedback – use FeedbackFruites to create peer feedback activities. This can be used for large classes also.

Bring your own laptop.

This workshop will introduce the participants to multiple aspects of Entrepreneurship & Innovation education. First, it will straighten out what entrepreneurship and innovation is and how these conceps are usually taught in higher education context. Second, it will discuss the different approaches for developing Entrepreneurship & Innovation education and invite the participants to think what are the elements needed to develop it and integrate it into the specific disciplines and contexts. Third, the workshop will emphasise the demand, the purpose, and the efforts required for developing Entrepreneurship & Innovation education. The workshop will focus on the role of the context in teaching Entrepreneurship & Innovation and discuss how to integrate specific concepts of entrepreneurship into teaching.

Research-based teaching is an educational approach that connects theoretical knowledge with real-world applications. By integrating research into teaching, we aim to empower students to become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and innovators prepared to tackle the complex problems of our time. But what makes research-based teaching what it is, and how can you translate the ideas into your own teaching practice?

In this workshop, we will identify the key principles of research-based teaching and its integration into the strategy of the University of Copenhagen, your home institution. We will also dive deeper into how we can implement research into teaching in different situations and for different students. Reflecting on our current situation will prompt you to find ideas for integrating research into your future teaching.

Do you encourage students to collaborate in groups? Have you ever encountered challenges in determining the best approach to facilitate group formation, or in providing support when conflicts arise or when groups hit a roadblock? Or do you find yourself stepping back and turning a blind eye, under the assumption that adult students should be capable of managing on their own?
Welcome to the intricate dynamics of group work. In this workshop, you will explore various strategies to effectively support group collaboration among students. We will introduce you to a range of tools – both digital, like the "My Study Group" app, and traditional, such as group or pedagogical contracts, the assignment of roles and tasks within the group, and techniques for aligning group activities with learning objectives.

Ever have your students view an important concept in your discipline as something that has always existed, as if it just fell out of the sky into someone’s lap? What if they had to start with some basic information available at the time and address the difficulties of developing this concept themselves? Alternatively, ever have your students learn a new concept and think they could apply it (“no problem!”) only to find out that they have no clue? What if you placed them in a situation where they have to put that new concept to use while you feed them clues along the way?

Welcome to the exciting possibilities of scenario-based teaching. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to see how it is possible to create a scenario that will enhance student learning in your course, sketch it out, and share your prototype with your colleagues.
