Teaching in times of Corona

On Thursday March 12, 2020, Dutch Higher Education changed from one day to the next as a result of the Covid-19 virus. From that day on, all UG education was only given online. Lecturers were faced with enormous challenges and tried to find the best possible solution to convert their lectures. Even in the new academic year, education will still largely take place online. Teachers are again confronted with various questions: which teaching methods are suitable for online education, what tools do I need, how do I keep students involved and how do I shape physical education within the contraints that have been imposed? And also: how do other teachers actually do that?

To answer the latter question, CLIQ asked lecturers to share a specific element of their online courses.
