Continuous training hybrid education

Questions about hybrid teaching? Drop by during a walk-in The first teaching term is well under way and teachers are finding their way around the classrooms. Some find it easier than others. Because there are still many questions about the set-up for hybrid education, we offer extra training sessions. It will feel very uncomfortable if you don’t know what to do when you're in front of a classroom full of students and a number of remote students are also taking part. Some preparation is recommended. It is not difficult, but it does not happen automatically either. Training moments Would you like to practice in a hybrid classroom and hear more about the possibilities? Then come along to one of the walk-in training sessions. These will be organised in October and November on Monday afternoons from 13.00 to 17.00 hours and on Thursday afternoons from 13.00 to 17.00 hours in room 1.042 at Bolognalaan 101. During these walk-in sessions, you can receive an explanation and try out the system for yourself. There will be colleagues present who can give both a technical explanation (AV driving licence) and didactic advice. Registration and more information Registration for the walk-in sessions is not necessary. Do none of these moments suit you? Please contact teachingsupport@uu.nl   for an appointment at another time.

Save-the-date Strengthen-Your-Education-Week

Have you ever participated in the Strengthen-Your-Education-Week? Twice a year, we offer UU teachers a week full of workshops and lectures aimed at strengthening their teaching. The past two editions were successfully organized online, with many interesting and well-visited lectures and workshops. The summer edition will take place online from Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July 2021. Pre-register now for the Strengthen-Your-Education-Week. As soon as the programme is finalized we will let you know via email. New: provide a session or input for Strengthen Your Education Week! In this upcoming edition, we want to offer teachers the opportunity to contribute directly to the programme of the Strengthen-Your-Education-Week for the first time. We encourage all teachers to suggest topics for sessions, or sign up to host a session themselves.  Do you think the programme should feature a particular topic? Or would you like to share your teaching experiences with colleagues as a workshop leader? Then please contact us! Examples of a session you could host: a lecture, a round table discussion, an inspiration session, an interview, and so on. If you would like to host a session, please send us a draft text of no more than 200 words by Friday, April 30, in which you describe the content and purpose of your session (this does not have to be in detail yet). Rough ideas for sessions are also welcome! We will then develop the session together. Please note: if we receive too many contributions we will need to make a selection.
