ICT in Education

Sharing best practices
4TU Delft
4TU Eindhoven
4TU Twente
4TU Wageningen

The Dutch Universities of Technology are strong in ICT research and education. Besides being the subject of education, ICT is also increasingly used in education, for instructional and assessment purposes. The most prominent example is the development of  Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs), but there is actually a plethora of ideas, techniques and tools to improve education by means of ICT.

One of the ambitions of 4TU.NIRICT is to stimulate collaboration in education within the Universities of Technologies. This includes, for example, supporting 4TU students in following courses at different Universities and to provide information accordingly. It also includes the support for teachers to collaborate and share knowledge.

All universities experiment to some extent with ICT techniques. What has become clear over time is that this is not marginal. In fact, application of ICT in education may lead to heavy investments without clear improvements to didactic aspects. Therefore, it is important to learn from each other and to understand when a technique can be used effectively.

The topic of ICT in education was selected by 4TU.NIRICT as particularly important. Therefore, an overview has been created of courses in which ICT is employed in new and innovative ways. The goal is primarily to share experiences, and to make best practices known. By referring to these courses the usage of ICT can be observed within the context of a course. In addition, teachers can contact each other regarding tools and methods.

The different applications of ICT have been summarized in several categories:

  1. web lectures
  2. assessments
  3. laboratory / simulation
  4. structuring material
  5. software support
  6. various

This overview is a living document, and new experiences can be added to it. If you have something to add, or have additional information about the initiatives that are already listed, you can contact us via Kim de Jong K.deJong@tudelft.nl
