Information on the UU website Contact teaching support 2 november - Lunchbite: THERMOS project Datum en tijd: maandag 2 november, 12.45-13.15 uur Voertaal: NL/EN Meld je aan! Online via MS Teams This month in the lunchbite: Marieke van der Schaaf and Lars de Vreugd will present the learning analytics dashboard which they developed to help students with study behavior and study progress. In these strange times of online education it can be difficult to create a learning environment that provides students with optimum support. The THERMOS-project aims to contribute to creating such an environment, by providing students at UU with insight and actionable feedback on their study behavior and progress. Students fill out a questionnaire within a learning analytics dashboard, about motivation, engagement and groupwork skills. By providing a visual representation of their self-assessment scores, students gain insight in which aspects of study behavior are strong and which could improve. If a student wants to improve or work on an aspect, follow-up activities are provided within the dashboard to do so. This academic year a pilot will be run within several study programs (e.g. Educational sciences, Biomedical sciences and Information sciences).  Do you want to hear more about this subject or do you have ideas about the teacher role in study behavior of the students? Please join Marieke and Lars in this webinar! 3 november - Q&A MS Teams: how do you deploy MS Teams for your teaching?

Design Thinking Session ‘Education is Everywhere’

Education doesn't just take place from 9 to 5, in classrooms or on an online platform. Learning never stops, it goes on, also in learners’ ‘spare time’. To explore the opportunities of learning outside the school walls, the Teaching & Learning Lab is organizing the Design Thinking session on Friday 13 November: Education is Everywhere. The festival is aimed at secondary and higher education. Guided by Antoinet Voschezang, Mirthe Mangnus & Heleen van Ravenswaaij, the participants will be challenged to use their creativity and find tangible and often unexpected solutions. This interactive session with a maximum of fifteen participants will take place in De Biltsche Hoek and provides direct access to a forest to gain inspiration. Participation is free and more information as well as the registration page for the Design Thinking session can be found here.

Workshop Effective Digital Assessment

This workshop is postponed due to the corona limitations. You will be contacted when a new date has been set. This workshop will offer some rules of thumb for composing a good exam and good (open or closed) exam questions. As an exercise, we will critically examine your past exam questions, looking for ways to improve them and learn how to write even better questions in future. We will also get our hands dirty: you’ll learn how to transfer your exam questions into Remindo and use them to compose an assessment. You’ll also learn how to re-use your questions in later assessments. By working this way, you will start to build a database of questions and answers that will benefit you for years to come. You will be working on your own questions in the workshop. Bring one of your past (summative or formative) assessments with you! You will also need to bring your own laptop. The deadline for signing up is the monday before the workshop The workshop is usually conducted in Dutch. If you’d prefer to take it in English, please email dp.educate-it@uu.nl for a personal appointment.
