As manager of the UM digital learning environment we are active in the SURF community and share our experiences on education and technology in (SURF) events and seminars.
A selection of news we made for you:
- Register for the SURF Onderwijsdagen 2017 (conference mainly in Dutch)
The program of the annual SURF Onderwijsdagen programme has been announced. Have yourself inspired on how ICT can support and change education for the better on 7 and 8 November. This year’s theme is ‘Education that moves you’. Until 23 October you can take advantage of the early bird registration fee.
The UM will also host you:
- Badgr selected as platform for proof-of-concept with open badges
SURFnet has selected the Badgr open source platform for its proof-of-concept to allow institutions to experiment with creating and awarding open badges. Under this agreement, the participating institutions have access to the latest version of Badgr, while SURFnet will contribute to future development of the platform and the open badge standard.
UM European Law School (Bram Akkermans) participates in the ‘proof of concept’.
