Developing Expertise: a practical approach to teaching in hands-on settings

Experiential and hands-on learning activities are increasingly common in higher education curricula because they offer great opportunities to develop both disciplinary and transversal skills. While macro aspects, ie course design, monopolise pedagogical efforts, how teachers and TAs interact with students during practical learning activities is essential to skill development. Drawing on research on the nature and development of 'expertise', we illustrate how to structure questions, feedback, and explanations to maximise the rich learning potential of hands-on environments. This session includes role play and case study activities from our TA training workshops, as well as material from our recent book.
