In the United States, just like elsewhere in the world, there has been lively discussion concerning different teaching methods over the past few decades. Higher education faces the challenge of developing student-centered learning. Although this type of development work has already demanded a great deal of time and resources, there have been few results that support an actual change.

The fourth public lecture of the Interactive Teaching and Learning project discusses the main issues in the development of teaching methods. The visiting lecturer is Professor Charles Henderson from the Western Michigan University (US).

Henderson’s research interests are those theories and strategies which examine the change in teaching methods, and which can be applied to different fields of science. In his lecture, Professor Henderson will talk about change strategies, networking at the faculty and department levels, and leadership theories.

The lecture will be held in English.
The event is open to all. Welcome!

The lecture will be broadcasted live via Moniviestin and can also be viewed afterwards:
