Have you caught yourself saying ‘this has always worked; why not this year?’ Or, ‘this year’s cohort is so different from last year’s’? One can run the same course year after year, at the same institution, and still one finds it necessary to adjust classroom management, methods of assessment or even course content. Clearly, students vary from country to country, from culture to culture, from year to year. This workshop aims to zoom in on a local, nonetheless intricate, teaching and learning context, and explore how we can better manage our preparation and class time through asking three crucial questions: Who are our students? How do our students learn? What can we do to engage and empower our students?
