Students as Partners in Educational Development
Session Time and Location
A challenge for educational developers is getting all teachers involved in the (re)design of their course. Some teachers want hands-on assistance. But as an educational development unit we don’t have the manpower to work on this micro-level. Meanwhile the involvement of students in higher education is gaining importance. The voice of students is considered key to improve the teaching and learning practice. At KU Leuven, we recently decided to experiment with students redesigning the online part of courses, making these courses better organized and more (attr)active. Do you involve students in educational design? Would you like to? Let’s share our ideas.
