The Community for Learning & Innovation (CLI) gives lecturers from Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) the opportunity to apply for a fellowship. With this fellowship, they research educational innovation, or carry out an educational project.
On this page you can read more about the CLI Fellowship of Welmoed van Deen (ESHPM) about teachers' well-being and work enjoyment in online education.

While online education has many benefits, including improved access for students who are unable to attend in-person classes, many teachers struggle with the transition to online education as they must develop a new online skill set and often miss the face-to-face interaction with students. To improve and maintain teachers’ well-being and motivation, it is important to ensure they are confident about their online teaching skills and feel connected with both students and peers. Therefore, we will develop and test two interventions to improve teacher well-being: (1) a toolset with teaching activities that help to connect teachers and students, which are tailored to the technical skill-level of the teacher; and (2) a social network intervention that facilitates low-key, seamless opportunities for shared learning between teachers.

Welmoed van Deen is an Assistant Professor at the Erasmus School of Health Policy and Management. Her research focuses on the use professional learning networks to support the implementation of value-based healthcare. Welmoed also serves as the coordinator for the online Pre-master Healthcare Management at ESHPM and has received a CLI research fellowship to look at the impact of online education on teacher well-being.
