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.
The Comenius programme contributes to the innovation and improvement of higher education in the Netherlands. The programme consists of three types of grants: ‘Teaching Fellow’, ‘Senior Fellow’ and ‘Leadership Fellow’. The grants enable education professionals to put their ideas for educational innovation into practice.
M1 grants have an amount of around EUR 360,000 and are intended for realizing curiosity-driven, fundamental research of high quality and / or scientific urgency.
Eleven partners from three countries (The Netherlands, Spain, and Cyprus) and the European Science Engagement Association have developed teaching modules on biodiversity, water management, and bird migration.
Their project has the title ‘ Sustainable Mobility through STEM Education’ (SMILE).
