Annual Meeting Centre for Education and Learning

The Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Education and Learning Annual Meeting is a yearly event where we showcase our achievements and plans for the year to come. Each year we pick a different theme that we explore together with keynote speakers, workshops and panels. This year's theme will be ‘Reflection with/on EdTech’.

This year's Annual meeting is linked to ‘100 days of Reflection’, organized in cooperation with 4TU.Centre for Engineering Education and the Teaching Academy of the TU Delft.

In this Annual Meeting we will explore what role EdTech can play in several aspects of reflection: reflection on educational design, delivery of education and evaluation, but also on the learning process and development of the students.


The preliminary program:

10:00 Introduction and word of welcome by LDE CEL Director Marcus Specht 

10.15 – 11.00 Keynote Dr. Martine Baars: The self in supporting self-regulated learning

11:00 – 11:45 Workshops Student opportunities and challenges for reflection

  1. Reframing Education, the quantified student - Eric Slaats (Fontys Hogeschool ICT)
  1. Blended Learning - Wiebe Dijkstra (Teaching & Learning Services TU Delft)
  1. Gamification of Learning - Alex Whitcomb & Koen Swinnen (ErasmusX)

    More engagement, more social interactions and may we say a little more fun? Learning via a game-based digital escape room.

    One of the identified issues in relation to online education is the lack of social engagement and interaction between students. Especially when you want your students to work together to solve a problem or combat a challenge. Sure, you can use zoom or teams, but these tools don't feel as natural or authentic real environments give you. Especially when you have a digital classroom over hundreds of students. So how do you enhance engagement and interaction online? This was the main challenge for Erasmus School of Law and innovation team ErasmusX of Erasmus University Rotterdam. Together we experiment with engaging game-based-learning environments for a brand-new Legal Tech course, launched in the new academic year. Join our session and get inspired by how we designed an Escape Room learning environment in the GatherTown platform. 1500+ part- and full-time Law students can now collaborate anywhere and anytime they want in an interactive way.
