Digital Examination: Writing Questions that Work - February 25th, 2021
There are many types of ways to write questions for examinations, and digitalising an examination can give an extra layer complexity. How can we make sure to assess what we want? Are you looking for tips on how to write questions that give the answers you are actually looking for?

Active Learning - January 21st, 2021
We all start to be used to using learning platforms and video meeting tools for meetings as well as different forms of learning activities. But to be honest, it can sometimes be a bit hard to get participants and learners to keep engaged when we have that screen in between.
So what can we do to get our students to be active participants and how will that impact their learning? During this seminar we will discuss how to integrate active learning principles in an online environment.
