Get inspired to teach study strategies


Takeaway Teaching is a teaching format that focuses on generic study strategies. It inspires teachers to facilitate activities that they can either integrate into their teaching or introduce as timetabled activities between their lectures and classroom teaching. The aim of Takeaway Teaching is to strengthen the study strategies of students, for instance with regard to writing a thesis, using study groups or searching for relevant literature.

The teaching plans:

  • helps to improve the study strategies of students
  • is facilitated by teachers and carried out in collaboration with students

As a teacher you:

  • integrate elements of Takeaway Teaching into your own teaching
  • redesign or amend the form and content of Takeaway Teaching to suit the subject content of your teaching
