    Public speaking skills - by Carla van Driel (Hofplein theater)

    Spreken in het openbaar vraagt om specifieke vaardigheden. Vaak zie je een spreker te veel privé en/of onvoorbereid, waardoor de boodschap niet voldoende overkomt. Door gebruik te maken van elementaire theater oefeningen krijgt de deelnemer een aantal tools aangereikt die hij of zij op een speelse manier in de praktijk kan gebruiken om een boodschap beter over te brengen.

    Students-for-Students walk-in hours

    Got an idea to improve education? Students-for-Students (S4S) will offer you (financial) support to make it happen!

    Students-for-Students (S4S) stimulates and facilitates students to set up projects that contribute to improving the quality of education for students. We support such projects through advice, practical support in kind (rooms for events, facilities etc.) and financial support. S4S is funded with the money released when the Dutch basic student grant (“basisbeurs”) was abolished. These funds were subsequently allocated to the universities for the purpose of improving the quality of education.. We are now returning this money to the students by getting students themselves to contribute to improving their education.

    Do you have a good S4S idea that you would like to receive support for? Or do you have any questions? Visit us during the S4S walk-in hours. S4S-initiative The Research Group will also be present.

    Digital Assessment Inspiration Session - by Giovanni Nobre MSc

    Since the new academic year EUR provides 336 places for taking digital assessments in the M-hall via Chromebooks. This means students will have NO access to other websites or software than the one you need to access the assessment. An advantage is that you can use multiple question types that were previously unimaginable with pen and paper. Both summative and formative assessments can be performed digitally.

    During this short introduction you will get to know the interface of the Remindo exam software and you can ask about the possibilities within your faculty to digitalize your exams!

    How do you educate students for an unknown future? - by Erdinç Saçan

    Developing students in an ever changing world is a real challenge in education. Changes in technology have created a situation which makes information and thus free open learning environments a readily available commodity. Tools for learning are becoming interactive, context aware and intelligent in a rapid pace. This opens up possibilities to approach teaching in a completely open manner. Giving ownership, trust and safety in a strength based approach creates new settings for personalized learning where students have ownership over Content, Level, Pace, Style and Data.

    Fontys University of Applied Sciences - Institute of ICT has 3600+ Students.

    Non-verbal communication - by Carla van Driel (Hofplein theater)
