Perusall: 'Every student prepared for every class'

By: Erwin van Vliet, Natasa Brouwer en Francien Giebels (Faculty of Science)

In this workshop you will learn how you can engage students using online tools in combination with a specific pedagogical approach. We will focus on the social online learning platform Perusall in combination with the pedagogies flipped class and peer instruction. We will also give practical examples to demonstrate how powerful this approach can be. You will get hands on experience with Perusall and these pedagogies. We aim to enthuse you and give tips how to facilitate student engagement, activation, motivation and deep learning. 

Open space: a teaching method to encourage student engagement

By: Erjo Beitler en René Glastra van Loon (Teaching & Learning Centre)

How to engage and get your students moving during online class? Through this workshop you will experience the added value of a practical and hands-on working method: an open space. A method focused on peer learning and creating a connection between students from a distance. By experiencing this method you will experience connection with your fellow teachers and exchange knowledge and experiences. In doing so you will learn to guide students while they take on the work. Join this workshop to experience and learn a teaching method to encourage student engagement. 

Three tools in 45 minutes: Getting acquainted with FeedbackFruits, eJournal and Acadamic Writing Assistant

By: Robert van Wijk (Faculty of Science)

As most of our education moved online, there is a plethora of licensed tools that can help to keep our students engaged. However, this creates a new challenge: how can you decide if and how to use a tool if you are unfamiliar with it? And – sometimes even more important – what kind of time investment might be necessary to use it? In this workshop you get acquainted with three tools that we use to good effect in our course Academic Competences Computer Science 1. These tools are FeedbackFruits (to encourage interaction between students), eJournal (to improve the interaction between student and lecturer) and Academic Writing Assistant from the KU Leuven (better academic writing). Together with your colleagues, you are going to create your own ‘minimal working assignment’ for each tool in a breakout room. 

Including societal impact in education: student engagement and sustainable working relationships

By: Nathalie Dijkman en Linde Bryck (Amsterdam Law School)

Are you interested in working with external partners to increase student engagement, but don’t know where to start? Or do you have ideas and need a boost? In this workshop you can learn from the Amsterdam Law Hub and the Amsterdam Law Clinics, in which students and staff members collaborate with external partners on social justice issues. Nathalie Dijkman (Manager of the Amsterdam Law Hub) and Linde Bryk (Director of the Amsterdam Law Clinics) will share their experiences in setting up and coordinating experiential learning projects. The goal of the workshop is firstly to inspire teachers and course coordinators in how they can work together with external (social) partners to create meaningful learning experiences for their students. Secondly, this workshop has a ‘networking’ function, namely to instigate opportunities for collaboration, with the Law Hub, the Law Clinics, or between participants.  

How students get involved in a curriculum innovation

By: Lydia van der Meij, Roos van Rhijn, Stan Driessen en Eline Bakker (Faculty of Medicine)

In the reason of curriculum innovations ‘the graduate of the future’ usually plays a main role. Does this graduate of the future – also known as student – have a voice in the plans and processes leading to what’s thought to be a better curriculum? In this workshop we will discuss on 1) how important is student participation in a curriculum innovation, 2) how and when to reach out and invite students to commit to an innovation project, 3) how to make the students commitment efficacious and how to manage expectations of all participants in the project and 4) how stakeholders experience students contributions, and in which way these are utilized.  This workshop is especially relevant for student council members, works council, educational committee, educational and program directors.

Telling pieces of the story of our curriculum innovation project, from both perspectives, we will dwell on choices made and thus on set times stop ourselves and give you the opportunity to reflect shortly in small groups. What went well, what could have been done better and how would you do this? We will use the breakout rooms in Zoom. Reflection on and exchange of experiences and ideas lead to a set of do’s and don’ts, based on the four subjects mentioned above. The do’s and don’ts you can take with you and use them, when, and in whichever phase, there is a curriculum change within your own department. After all, it’s never too late to get students involved!

Escape Game Psychology

By: Marthe Heitbrink, Roos Knijnenburg en Bart van Loenen (Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences)

The programme specific introduction day is an important day for first year students. During this day, they get an explanation about the ins and outs of the programme, a tour around the campus and they meet their fellow students. Because of the corona crisis a physical introduction day was not possible. Very unfortunate, because meeting fellow students is very important in these times, especially for the international students. That's why we came up with the Escape Game: something that would allow them to work together and get to know each other in a fun way. During this workshop you can experience a part of the escape game yourself and how you can apply it to your own programme.

Effective assessment in times of corona

By: Dr Peter Eversmann, Hannah Kousbroek en Willem Pool (Faculty of Humanities)

In this workshop, we will discuss the pros and cons of common types of online assessment, such as open book exams, multiple choice questions and oral exams – with a focus on how to prevent cheating. How can you ensure that the form of remote assessment you choose requires and encourages active student engagement during your course? We will talk about what we have seen and learned about effective remote teaching and assessment while supporting lecturers in times of corona. Finally, we will discuss participants’ questions about online assessment. The goal of this workshop is to reflect on how we have transferred existing forms of assessment to suit online teaching and stimulate student engagement in times of corona. What pitfalls have we come across, such as cheating, and how can you avoid these as best as possible? Can we benefit from the current circumstances in any way?

How to encourage self-regulation of students

By: Stephanie Maijs, Ilja Boor en Sandra Cornelisse (Faculty of Science)

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many lecturers were suddenly forced to switch from on-site to online teaching. This abrupt shift to online education has not changed students' self-regulation skills, while greater demands are being made on them. For example, students find it more difficult to continue studying actively and to regulate their own learning process. In order to achieve effective learning in an online environment increasing students' self-regulatory skills must be a central tenet in designing online education. In this workshop we therefore want to discuss what you can do as an lecturer to stimulate students' online self-directed learning and discuss appropriate working methods and tips and tricks.

Online Team-Based Learning

By: Karline Timmermans, Isa Levert en Katie Crouwel (Faculty of Medicine & Faculty of Dentistry)

In order to facilitate active and in-depth education, both at the Faculty of Medicine and subsequently at the Faculty of Dentistry (ACTA), the educational form Team Based Learning (TBL) has been introduced. Team Based Learning is an interactive form of education in which teams of students work on a variety of complex issues. Students apply problem-solving skills that are important in their future work situation. The aim of TBL is for students to apply new knowledge in a profession-oriented context, and to process the subject matter in an active and in-depth manner. This interactive type of educational form is ideally suited for teaching large groups of students. In this workshop you will experience what it is like to participate as a student in an online TBL session. You will also gain insight into how you can stimulate discussion in your role as a lecturer. We focus on interaction and discussion: discussion within the teams and between the teams. At the end of the workshop, you will have formulated concrete guidelines for yourself on how to stimulate discussion between students.
