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.

You will become acquainted with the concept of ‘blended learning’, its strengths, and what it can mean for you as a lecturer. You will contemplate the purpose of your education and get started (re-)designing it. During the design phase, you will determine what material will be offered during face-to-face instruction, what you can offer online, and which tools you can use. You will receive feedback on your design and some handy tips on how to implement it in your curriculum.
