EPFL MOOC: Teaching Science & Engineering

Dear colleagues,

We are happy to invite you to join us for the next edition of the Teaching Science and Engineering free online course!

This 8-week MOOC is organized by the Teaching Support Centre at EPFL, one of Europe’s top engineering schools. It is designed for new instructors and doctoral teaching assistants and addresses both what to do when you are teaching as well as explaining why these approaches and strategies are appropriate and useful for teaching scientific and engineering disciplines at the university level.

We invite you to have a look at the course programme and enroll in the spring edition starting April 12th. Please, send us to your friends and colleagues.

We are looking forward to seeing you online!

Siara Isaac, Ingrid LeDuc, Roland Tormey, Cécile Hardebole and Iris Capdevila.
