SUTQ Final Symposium

17 februari 2022
You are invited to the [bo]online final symposium of the [bo]Senior University Teaching Qualification Trajectory (SUTQ) of a group of 20 great teachers from ESHCC, ESSB, EUC, ESL, EMC, ESE & ESHPM that started the trajectory last June.

During the SUTQ they have all worked on their own educational innovation project. Now it is time to share with you what they have learned about their innovations and what advice they would give to the university to move forward. Therefore, they will host four interactive sessions. Are you ready to collaboratively take a next step in education at our university? Then join the conversation in the final symposium.

The symposium will be held on [bo]Thursday 17 February from 13:00-16.00 via Zoom.

Please find the program of the symposium below. Underneath the invitation you will find the description of each session and the teachers who will facilitate the session. It is completely fine to jump in and out of the session to participate in the sessions of your preference.

Description of the sessions

[bo]The Hitchhikers' Guide through the UnivEURsity

Facilitated by: Ana Uribe Sandoval (ESHCC), Chris Muller (EUC), Annemarie Hiemstra (ESSB), Marjan Gorgievski (ESSB), Lesya Ganushchak (ESSB)

Navigating a university program is like hitch hiking, in a way;
You have a destination in mind, and you have to choose the stops and route you think will get you there. At every stop there are new insights about the ideal route. Choosing the stops and directions offer ownership and freedom, but there are important considerations:

- Your chosen stop-overs might not provide easy paths to the next station on the path,
- You are not driving yourself, i.e. you do not determine the speed, -you might have to deal with strange prerequisites that the driver has,
- Going fast might not be fun but a fun scenic route might not be fast..

Enter, your teachers! They should ideally ensure that your stops are suited for a continued sense of ownership, direction and freedom. So how do we do that? Our take-aways from the SUTQ program will explain.

The presentation will have the format of an adventure game that is played. The audience collectively goes on a journey, guided by the presenters. After an introduction with an ice-breaker the audience will be presented with a series of 5 interactive challenges (riddles, questions, assignments).

[bo]Bridging the gap

Facilitated by: Nicole Lucassen (ESSB), Evelot Westerink-Duijzer (ESE), Marloes Nederhand (ESSB), Martina Buljac (ESHPM), Kamran Ikram (EMC)

Innovation in education can only be successful when gaps are bridged: gaps between people, between topics and between courses. Based on our innovation projects, we share our insights into successful approaches to bridge gaps. In this interactive session, we discuss with the audience how we can make successful and lasting improvements to education and which gaps can or cannot be bridged by us as teachers.

[bo]Think about the teacher who you remember the mostů

Facilitated by: Gabry Vanderveen (ESL), José Nederhand (ESSB), Olivier Nyirubugara(ESHCC), Eva Klijn (EMC), Bibi van Montfrans (EMC), Naomi Oosterman (ESHCC)

Gert Biesta states that education should be oriented toward three domains of purpose: qualification, socialization, and subjectification. What have we learned during our SUTQ and from our experimental innovation projects in terms of qualification, socialization, and subjectification?

[bo]A case for case-based learning

Facilitated by: Jan Pletzer (ESSB), Kimberley Breevaart (ESSB), Michal Onderco (ESSB), Claudia Keyzer-Dekker (EMC)

Case-based learning is an innovative teaching method in which students apply theoretical knowledge to practical, real-life problems. As all of us have introduced a form of case-based learning in our teaching innovation projects, we want to "make a case for case-based learning". We illustrate the usefulness of it by letting you experience it yourself: You will work on a case asking you to think about how the implementation of case-based learning can be further improved.
