Back to school!

Our lecturers and academic team are on the other side of the desk at the moment, as they complete their Swiss Adult Vocational Education teaching certificates...

At IMI, we advocate lifetime learning to our students and always stress that training and education does not finish the moment you pick-up your degree award.

Our academic team are currently offering a very real example of this as they work towards their Part Time Teacher in Adult Vocational Education awards.

The qualification, offered by PHZH Zurich University of Teacher Education and the SIEB Schweizerisches Institut für Erwachsenenbildung, involves 300 hours of learning with staff taking time from their busy schedules to attend classes and complete assignments.

The course is conducted by a variety of education and industry professionals and covers topics including presentation skills, lesson planning, learning outcomes and student feedback and communication.

On completion of the programme in mid-2021, our academics will receive the Swiss award of Lehrperson an höheren Fachschulen im Nebenberuf and will get to attend their very own graduation ceremony in Zurich.

Reflecting on the benefits of the study course, IMI’s Swiss Degree Programme Leader Dr. Brühlmann commented: “Having taught for over 20 years, the Swiss education course allows me to reflect about my teaching materials and methods.

“This is especially useful in these turbulent times in which we are having to utilise more online and hybrid teaching methods.”

Although the team are relatively early on in the course, she has also noticed the new techniques paying dividends in her own classes.

“It is great to gather new materials and deliver new methods and, from the feedback I have received, our students seem to like them too,” she said.

We wish all our academic team the best of luck with the remainder of their programme and are excited to see their new skills and techniques providing benefits to our students in the classroom.
