This training is focused on developing project led education.

This training is designed for teachers who wil (re-)design a project in the UT bachelor education (TOM). The training is tailor-made. On the basis of a so-called ‘menu card’ of options a programme will be put together which caters for specific needs of the teachers involved. Wherever possible educational stakeholders such as the programme director, a module coordinator and an experienced teacher will be involved into the training propgramme.

Usually the faculty educational advisor, possibly complemented by an educational expert of the Centre of Expertise in Learning and Teaching (CELT), will act as trainers. The training consist of three sessions plus a follow-up session.

The first meeting will address the choice of a project assignment, the second the global design of a project and the third the design of a test programme and testplan, that give feedback on how to improve, so it stimulates learning and personal growth.

In the training much attention is paid to the group discussion and sharing ideas and experiences. All participants will work on the (re-)design of their own teaching material.


For the standard training programme: 18 hours, consisting of 4 meetings (3 times 4 hours and o 1 time 3 hours) and 3 hours of self-study.
