Using the CCCS principles to design new assessment methods for calculus

 Calculus, one of the most challenging math courses for students in engineering programmes, is still mainly assessed using traditional methods, neglecting the fundamental principles of Problem-Based Learning (PBL). We aim to develop new assessment formats that increase student confidence, interaction, motivation in calculus, and overall performance.

Blastoids go AR/VR

In this project, we will create a new augmented/virtual reality pipeline for education, science and outreach. Together with the DEXLab (UM), we will install this pipeline at the MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine to create interactive, immersive learning and science experiences using open-source software.

Developing and piloting a project manual and related teaching approach to promote self-directed learning during entrepreneurship training 

We are developing and piloting a project manual and a related teaching approach based on ‘sprints’ to foster self-directed learning during entrepreneurship training. Our goal is to provide a smoother and more productive learning trajectory with higher-quality outcomes and a more satisfying experience for students and staff.

Learning on Instagram? Using social media video sharing for Blended PBL

Social media are more than entertainment. Photo and video sharing platforms like Instagram are widely used to access information and can facilitate learning – also in higher education. But how do relevant didactical efforts translate to Problem-Based-Learning? The project explores how to use Instagram to support and enhance blended PBL.

Setting yourself up for success: using action-planning principles during your studies 

Keeping an overview of what is expected and planning accordingly is difficult for many students. With this project, I want to use action-planning principles to aid students with their responsibilities during their student life, giving them the tools to set themselves up for success.
