Blended Learning

The Blended Learning project was set up in cooperation with the Niedersächsisches Landesamt für Lehrerbildung und Schulentwicklung (NiLS).

Target Group and Aim

The target group consisted of 15 German teachers of Dutch who had to be trained from level B2 to level C1 in terms of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). The Blended Learning Project was developed in May 2006 to prepare them for the final examination, the Profiel Academische Taalvaardigheid (PAT) of the CNaVT (Certificaat Nederlands als Vreemde Taal; Certificate of Dutch as a Foreign Language).


The following Language Centre staff members were involved in the project:

  • Ms B.L.A. de Boer (teacher/coordinator)
  • Ms B.V.J.M. Lijmbach (teacher)
  • Ms A.M. Dijk (project manager)

Our German colleagues in the project were:

  • Dr H.C. Facklam (NiLS departmental head)
  • Mr H. Hülsdünker, MA
  • Dr B. Kasper-Heuermann (course leader/teacher)
  • Ms C. Wittstruck (teacher)

Blended Learning Method

Blended learning is a teaching method consisting of various components:

  • Face-to-face contact: determining the starting level of each individual student
  • Distance learning: developing an electronic learning environment
  • Workshops in Germany and the Netherlands
  • Individual distance supervision: individual feedback on writing assignments
