VU NT&L Network Event

23 november 2021 @ 09:00 - 17:00

Cancellation of face to face VU NT&L Network Event, 23 November 09:00-17:00

Due to the urgency to limit contacts because of the growing number of corona infections, we unfortunately had to decide to cancel our VU NT&L Network Event of 23 November in the New University Building. This means that there will be no face to face meeting. As this network event is meant to get to know each other better, an online version would not serve its purpose. We will therefore now rather focus on our other upcoming meetings and on a new network event to be planned.

There are many registrations for the VU NT&L Network Event. That is why we are pleased to announce that Kristina Edström will present her keynote ‘The Teaching Trick – How to improve student learning without spending more time’, which was planned for the afternoon, online from 09:30-11:00. An excellent opportunity to share knowledge about attractive and effective activating teaching methods in these times of great work pressure.

Annulering fysieke VU NT&L Network Event, 23 november 09:00-17:00

Door de noodzaak om contacten te beperken vanwege het toenemend aantal coronabesmettingen, hebben we helaas moeten besluiten om ons VU NT&L Network Event van 23 november in het Nieuwe Universiteitsgebouw te annuleren. Dit betekent dat er geen fysieke bijeenkomst zal zijn. Aangezien dit netwerkevenement bedoeld is om elkaar beter te leren kennen, zou een online variant haar doel voorbij schieten. We gaan ons daarom nu liever richten op onze overige komende bijeenkomsten en op een nieuw te plannen netwerkevenement.

Er zijn veel aanmeldingen voor het VU NT&L Network Event. Het verheugt ons daarom dat Kristina Edström haar keynote ‘The Teaching Trick – How to improve student learning without spending more time’, die ‘s middags was gepland, op die dag alsnog online zal verzorgen, van 09:30-11:00. Een uitgelezen kans om in deze tijden van grote werkdruk, kennis te delen over aantrekkelijke en effectieve activerende onderwijsmethoden.


Main language is English.
