Did you face difficulties in designing and delivering your courses during the last 1.5 years? Would you like to design your courses blended? Do you wish to be part of a diverse, independent, and interdepartmental team of UM educators, and exchange ideas towards the common goal of “blended (re)design”?

EDLAB and EDvance aim to bring together 6-12 junior and senior educators from different UM faculties and departments to work towards the common theme of this pilot CoP: “blended (re)design”. One of the group members will take the role of the group leader and oversee the groups’ collaborative process, timeline, and deliverables.

The project will run from ?? until ??. The CoP project meetings will be scheduled every three weeks and last for approximately three hours. They will be held online (in MS Teams) or physically (on EDLAB). Between the meetings, the participants will carry out activities (3 hours per meeting). You will be compensated for your time investment.

If our CoP pilot sounds appealing to you, please fill in the registration form below until 27st of November 2021.

After the registration deadline, the potential participants will be invited for a short intake of 30 minutes.

For inquiries, please contact: Barend Last (barend.last@maastrichtuniversity.nl) or Stefan Jongen (stefan.jongen@maastrichtuniversity.nl)






    For this first Community of Practice, you will dive into the topic of “Blended learning”. More specifically, you will investigate how blended learning fits into our PBL education. However, as the methods and outcomes of a Community of Practice are not predetermined, together with the fellow members of the CoP you can decide for yourself whether you will work on redesign, do small-scale research, or something else.

    Your manager or director needs to consent with your participation in this Community of Practice. The manager/director will be present during the application interview.
    The hours for participation in this Community of Practice are reimbursed from the program. For regular participation, this is 51 hours, spread over approximately 25 weeks. By agreeing to this, you indicate that you can fit this time into your schedule.

    Students are strongly encouraged to discuss their application with a study advisor, mentor or academic advisor, prior to submitting.

    The Community of Practice will receive guidance from the Technology-Enhanced Education program, but in addition to that support, one member of the Community of Practice will act as leader. Leading a community of practice includes preparing meetings, booking rooms, setting dates, et cetera.
    The role requires approximately 103 hours, which will be fully compensated.
