In addition to education for students, universities also provide education for professionals which is also called Continuing Education (CE). Education for (external) professionals requires a certain design and supervision. In order to support lecturers in the EWUU alliance (WUR, UU, TU/e) in the (further) development of this type of education and to learn from each other, the EWUU alliance partners offer the Modular course 'Didactics for Continuing Education’. There will be three runs of the program, one per alliance partner starting during the academic year 2022-23.
About the program
You register for module 1. In module 1, vision on CE and characteristics of appropriate CE didactics are central. We first discuss what the organization and what you yourself want to achieve with CE. The main part of the meeting, we spend on the characteristics of didactics for CE. Does this differ from didactics for initial students, and how? With each participant there is a short online/telephone intake interview.
Participants who want to make the translation to their own CE can decide to take the whole course immediately, or after module 1. They can choose a route that is more focused on the design of CE or a route that is focused on the supervision of CE, or choose a route with both the design and the supervision of CE. In the course there is ample opportunity to work on personal learning goals and own casuistry.
