The VU Education Lab compiled an extensive online collection of teaching tips. They comprise succinct documents that describe useful ideas and practical methods for effective teaching, course design and curriculum design. New instructors will find the tips helpful for answering many of the questions and concerns that arise when teaching in a university setting for the first time. Seasoned instructors can also use the tips to obtain new ideas and learn different approaches.
Browse the collection of more than 100 teaching tips on this website. We try to extend and improve the collection as we go along.
