Leaves are falling, ICO Fall School is calling!

By | Dissemination, English, Event, MOOCs, open education, Output, Presentations | No Comments

Looking outside the window red, yellow and brown trees are passing with 300 km/h. Flat landscapes are being alternated with somewhat more mountain like surroundings (disclaimer: if you’re Dutch, everything that’s not flat can be called a mountain). Around every corner and tunnel, hides a new décor: small villages, typical churches, vineyards and forests… We slowly make our way to the south of Germany…It’s a new Monday, just another day at the office for a PhD student in educational sciences. Because if leaves start falling, the ICO Fall School is calling! From the 31st of October till the 4th the…

goed / fout

By | Dutch, English, Presentations | No Comments

Een tijdje geleden werd ik gevraagd om een workshop te verzorgen tijdens het studentsymposium van Fontys Sittard. Het opleidingsinstituut waar ik zelf bijna 20 jaar geleden het diploma docent wiskunde behaald heb. Het onderwerp van die dag was ”Deuren open: Van binnen naar buiten – en van buiten naar binnen”. Natuurlijk zeg je ja als je iets over Agora mag vertellen. Vertellen over hoe wij de deuren open zetten voor de buitenwereld en niet meer in vakken denken en leren. Wat deze aanpak voor de leerlingen en voor de docenten (die wij Agoriaanse Meesters noemen) betekent. Misschien kan ik met mijn verhaal een van deze aankomende…

Keynote on Introduction to Learning Analytics still needed!

By | Conferences, Dutch, English, Presentations, publication | No Comments

I have been asked to give an introductory keynote to Learning Analytics at the Dutch Onderwijsdagen (Teaching days). The Onderwijsdagem are a huge conference that attracts over 700 people every year, it is comparable to BETT in the UK, or OnlineEduca in Germany.

I first was wondering if there is still an introduction to Learning Analytics needed but that was the typical misinterpretation when you talk LA all day long. You believe the core concepts are already common sense but in…
