Comenius Teaching Fellow grant for Dr. May Lee

12 May 2022

Dr. May Lee of the Institute for Science Education and Communication (ISEC) has been awarded a Comenius Teaching Fellow grant by the NRO (“Nationaal Regieorgaan Onderwijsonderzoek”). She receives around EUR 50,000 for her project ‘Developing a Framework to Optimize Existing Curricula for Hybrid Instruction’.

Many students attend university to study STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – fields. Given the recent increases in Bachelor’s students enrolling in those studies, large courses often lack the physical space to accommodate all enrolled students during lectures/tutorials at the same time. Thus, universities need to reconsider how those courses are organized. One solution is hybrid education. This project proposes a framework, based on research of effective teaching practices, that instructors can use to adapt their existing curricula to a hybrid form.
