Redesign, enrich and transform your course with open materials

I nformation specialists from the University of Groningen Library and didactic experts from Education Support & Innovation will host a workshop focused on helping you redesign and enrich your course (in whole or in part) with open materials.

We know from experience that you may want to try new and interesting things with your courses and assignments but simply lack the support, opportunity, or time to do so. We’re teachers ourselves, so we get it. That’s why we’ve put together a fun, interactive workshop – to give you the time, space and help you need to try new things.

Date Due to the coronavirus, this training is postponed until further notice.
Target group University teachers and teaching teams
Study load 15 hours (preparation included)
Number of participants 6-12 participants
Main language English
Price 0 EUR
Location University of Groningen Library Zernike (Duisenberg Building)
Extra information
  • Lunch is included.
  • The date of the second day will be determined after the first day based on the availability of the participants.
  • It is possible to join with colleagues working on the redesign of the same course. Please enroll separately.

During the workshop, we’ll work alongside you and provide:

  • Didactic advice
  • Assistance with finding materials and resources
  • Help exploring all the cool things that can be done with reusable and open materials
  • Expertise and advice in the area of open education
  • Copyright assistance
  • Inspiration
  • Food

Your participation won’t just benefit your own course – you will also help us better understand your needs, so we can work on developing new services and infrastructure to make your teaching life easier.

The workshop will take one full day. A shorter half-day return session will be scheduled a month later, based on participants’ availability.

Just in case you’re still not convinced - did we mention that lunch, coffee, tea and snacks are free?
