To prepare for these discussions, students read literature. In the first four course days, before the sessions with the scholars start, the discussions are prepared.
On the fifth and final day the participants work on an assignment in which they summarize and present the discussion.

Assessment:

Based on the workshops and the literature for each workshop, small groups will present a research proposal for one of the four themes of the masterclass (Teacher, Teaching, Teacher education and Teacher learning). The last day of this masterclass is a project day. In the afternoon, 8 groups (of 3 students each) will present their ideas in two parallel streams. In the morning, these groups will have time to finalize the presentations. We ask you to prepare a research plan for a particular topic within one of the four masterclass themes. The presentations of the afternoon will be assessed.

Your masterclass credit will be based on this group assessment together with your active participation during the masterclass. 

Information on the requirements, format, criteria and group constellation will be available one month before the start of the masterclass.
