More educational projects

TU/e, WUR, UU and UMC Utrecht are cooperating to innovate their curricula, to make them more widely available and to develop joint curricula. Six interrelated projects have started up to this end, which will eventually result in a future-proof, innovative educational concept.

In addition to the projects: development of innovative, didactic teaching methods, the exchange of students and staff and the joint approach to education for professionals, the following projects have been defined:

(Online) alternatives for practicals, field work and internships

In the coming academic years education will still be affected by the COVID-19 measures. In order for our education to be done ‘any where and at any time’, each institution is redesigning parts of the educational programmes. Education where practical skills are taught, such as practicals, field work or internships are more difficult to redesign. By investing in (online) alternatives for practicals, field work and internships now, we can solve some short term problems, while at the same time getting valuable insight in the possibilities and boundaries of such education in the future.

Joint Masters programme

Jointly and with the students, the institutions develop a new Master’s programme. In this way students acquire the values, attitude, skills and knowledge needed to solve problems not previously encountered. This is supported by a learning environment that is personal, cooperative, interdisciplinary, flexible and adaptive. Contact: Sabine Uijl, s.g.uijl@uu.nl, Ulrike Wild, ulrike.wild@wur.nl
