Similar to the theoretical component, the skills lab consists of two parts. Part A focuses on Research skills and Part B addresses Teaching skills.
- You will prepare and deliver a short (online) lesson using one of the instructional theories from the theoretical component;
- You will attend (online) lessons of your peers as a student;
- You will assume the role of a researcher to investigate the teaching-learning process in these (online) lessons.
