Teaching tips

Teaching tips


Since 2004, ECHO has been sending out a monthly teaching tip. Teaching tips are short, practical ideas and suggestions for teachers. No big theories, but simple, practical tools that can inspire you during your lessons or lectures. The tips also refer to specific materials and in-depth literature. These (Dutch) tips can be consulted both thematically and chronologically. A selection of tips has also been translated and is available in English.


As a member of the teaching staff at the University of Antwerp, you will find these tips in the monthly Education newsletter. If you are not a member of this group or if you would like to receive these emails, you can register by sending an email with your full name and email to hans.smolderen@uantwerpen.be.


The ECHO teaching tips are published in Dutch. A selection has been translated in English and can be found here.
