Integrating information literacy into your course
The library organises workshops, has made some online tutorials and instructional videos. Tutorials, video’s and additional information can be found on the Skills & Support page.
Blended PBL Support
In addition to hosting the digital learning environment (EleUM), the Library also supports teachers in using Blended teaching methods and other activating pedagogies, with the PBL-philosophy at its core. We facilitate teachers with a variety of online tools, such as (peer) feedback and audience response tools, to embed in both face-to-face and online activities.
EleUM offers functionality to create tests and surveys. In addition, as from the academic year 2019-2010 faculties can make use of digital assessment in the MECC for their courses, making use of TestVision.
Students enter course-related content and tools in the digital learning environment via the Student Portal. Teaching and support staff work in the back-end or learning management system (currently Blackboard).
Online discussions provide unique benefits. Because students can take time to ponder before they post ideas, you may see more thoughtful conversations play out. But you can also extend your office hours and reach students more often during the week so that learning is continuous.
Concept-mapping and mind-mapping tools are being used by both students and teachers to support note taking, brainstorming in the tutorial group meetings or structuring writing activities.
Check the originality of a student's paper by making use of SafeAssign; the plagiarism detection tool, connected to submitting assignments in the digital learning environment.
Do you want to actively engage your students in the subject matter after they leave the Problem Based Learning (PBL) session? FeedbackFruits modules could facilitate this for your course!
