Innovation in Education

Our impact on educational innovation is greatest when we work together.

Empowering education together means we’re stronger when we work together to create collective impact. When we share ideas and help each other out, we can make big changes in how we teach and learn. Whether you have a question, want to team up, or just need to step away from your daily educational practice, we’re here for you!

If you are an educator who would like to make a difference and create impact, the following courses can help you germinate, synthesize, develop, and disseminate your ideas:

Expert Educational Design
Do you notice that the lecturers in your department want to innovate their education, but don't know exactly where to start or how to set it up? Would you like to join educational innovations at VU Amsterdam and/or make use of the possibilities offered by active blended education, mixed classroom and a broader mind? With this course, you will discover the secrets behind the sustainable redesign of education and learn how to guide other teachers in this process. 

Design Workshops
Do you want to (re)design your course together with the help of education specialists? Do something truly innovative and path-breaking, but before you take the plunge would you like to consult with an expert to get feedback and ideas? Come to a Design Studio together with your colleagues and (re)design your education in one day.

Big Ideas in Curriculum Design
Are you working on curriculum innovation or (re)design? Do you like to collaborate with colleagues and are you intrigued by key questions such as: 'How do we prepare our students today for tomorrow's world?' Do you want expert guidance, practical tools for curriculum design and the opportunity to learn with and from each other? And do you ultimately want to have a complete (re)designed curriculum for your programme in your hands? Then sign up for this inspiring and hands-on programme!
