Inspiration session Big Ideas in Curriculum Design

23 May 2023
On May 15 the Centre for Teaching & Learning (CTL) hosted a session of inspiration ‘Big Ideas in Curriculum Design’ led by Yolanda Koevoets and Kerstin Hämmerling.

During the event, participants took part in a World Café where crucial topics such as technology-use and inclusion were explored in order to create a comprehensive curriculum. The first keynote lecture for the occasion was provided by Kees Klomp, Professor of Applied Science at Rotterdam University of Applied Science. Kees spoke about "Betekeniseconomie Systeemverandering van het businessonderwijs" in which he emphasized passion, ideals, potential, and personality that serve as a compelling call to action for people to become change agents. The second speaker, CTL Director, Janneke Waelen, articulated the importance of building connections between disciplines and between people. She underlined the relevance of belonging and explained how it serves as a foundation and building block for instructional design. 

Would you like to more on this topic? Are you working on curriculum renewal or (re)design? Would you like to work with colleagues to unpack key questions such as: 'How do we prepare our students today for the world of tomorrow?' Do you also want expert guidance, practical tools, and 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 study programme in your hands? Then the CTL offers this program for your needs (page is in Dutch).
