Designing learning outcomes and structuring lesson plan

Brief introduction to the course

The course is a requirement for all new full-time research postgraduate students to undertake teaching or assessment duties for their departments. The course aims to introduce the principles of learning, teaching, assessment and feedback in HKU’s context as well as to model ways of how teaching can be improved. It explores how to actively engage learners in small group settings and discusses teaching and learning activities typical of tutorials and/or lab-based teaching. Participants will first learn practical teaching strategies, such as structuring and managing tutorial, designing high impact tutorial activities and techniques for actively engaging a diverse range of students. Participants will also learn about assessment. With constructive and actionable feedback from teacher and peers, participants will identify what went well and what needs improvement in their initial teaching practice.

Number of seats for observers/visitors

Purpose of this Session

This session aims to prepare the participants for their initial teaching practice by designing learning outcomes and structuring lesson plan.

Through various activities, participants will learn how to design appropriate learning outcomes and lesson plan. Principles and rationale of setting learning outcomes and designing in-class activities will be discussed.
