Customised workshops for specialist subjects

Upon request, the HDA offers workshops and consultation for specialist subjects to all departments of TU Darmstadt that reflect the respective teaching formats and needs within the departments.

Possible formats are:

  • Half-day to two-day workshops for research associates regarding specialist subjects such as “Assisting students in their laboratory work” or “Designing versatile research seminars”. These workshops are also part of the Higher Education Teaching Certificate.
  • Brief two-hour to four-hour workshops for professors regarding current higher education issues such as “Alternative assessment formats”.
  • Consulting for institutes on how best to develop new concepts for teaching and assessing specialist subjects.
  • Moderating meetings of institutes or departments that aim at fine-tuning teaching contents or to develop degree programmes.

Workshop trainers are either employees at HDA with many years of experience or visiting lecturers from outside with the respective specialist background requested by the department.

Should you request a customised workshop by the HDA for your department / institute, please contact Dr. Annette Glathe, Head of University Teaching and Learning Development.
