Padrtova on innovation in learning and teaching in higher education

Tuesday, June 05, 2018

Barbora Padrtova attended the #EuroTLC in Prague, last week. Two days conference on Teaching and Learning Politics, International Relations and European Studies focused on teaching & learning in higher education and the relevance of education for the future labor market. Barbora Padrtová shared her personal experience with innovation in courses taught at the Department of IR and European Studies FSS MU.  
Her talk can be summarized in three most important points:  
i) give students more control over their own education (content choice/ grading adjustments/ class activities) 
ii) create connections between the class content and real-life 
iii) focus on the development of relevant skills, not only knowledge
