Online Training Courses
If you are a lecturer at Utrecht University, you can participate in the online training courses offered by Educate-it for free, at a time and place that is most convenient to you. Or if you prefer, you can attend the blended training course instead! Each month, the course deals with a different topic from the circle, and workshops are offered on the topic as well. These workshops tie in to the online training course for the specific topics.
This training is about what online education is and how you can design your own online education. According to a number of steps, you will learn how to develop online education. Online education and online teaching are very different from the usual on-campus teaching. For this reason, this training course also specifically addresses online didactics and points for attention when teaching online. The training covers various applications of online education, with more extensive attention being paid to one application: Virtual Exchange. This is an application that the UU intends to further develop and deploy in the coming years, in collaboration with a number of European universities.Log in
The purpose of this online training course is to support you in writing a project plan to: A) obtain insight into a problem that you may be experiencing in your own curriculum, or B) solve that problem. In a step-by-step fashion, you will be invited to take a close look at your own curriculum and to think about: your desired outcomes, the learning activity (or activities) you could use, the learning processes that play a role, the question you would like to answer, and the data you need to collect to answer it. Specialist educational or scientific literature will help you to better understand your teaching methods and how your students learn, and can be used to support your project plan.To the training
