The objective of the course is to become aware of and acquire skills associated with being a teacher. Often teachers are experts in a specialism or in design, without a didactic background. Moreover, an expert largely practices his/her profession implicitly. 
However, being an instructor means being able to make this largely implicit skill clear to students and specifically train students in (sub)skills. 
In the teacher training ‘design didactics’ the first steps are taken towards naming implicit design skills and consciously using didactic skills.  
The course offers a varied program of short lectures in which theory is addressed as a framework for practical practice to train skills.  
Central to this two-day course is the design process. Common practice is that teachers focus mainly on the design product, as they do in their office practice. Learning to design, however, also means making the design process explicit.   

This includes interaction aspects, such as looking and listening, asking questions, instructing and explaining, and the structure and atmosphere of an assistance.
