Technological possibilities, didactical responsibilities - two teacher experiences

For: Teachers and educational support staff
Host: Michael Klos (LLM BSc, Department of Jurisprudence) Dr. Christian Tudorache (Assistant Professor, Institute of Biology) & Daan Romein (ICLON, Team Leader Professional Development)

In a very short time, we were able to make the switch from regular, classroom, education to remote teaching. The available technology often shows what education will look like, but how can we use them best for teaching and learning? In this webinar two teachers will share their experiences and insights.

Michael Klos (Law - Department of Jurisprudence) will discuss some of the tools made available by the University (eg. Kaltura) and how he complements these tools with open source, cross-platform, free, software for editing video (such as Blender) and audio (such as Audacity). He selected these tools based on their ability to output content that is reusable in a multitude of (educational) contexts. He also show how he makes them fit within a broader framework of didactic principles that he believes should be leading in remote teaching.

Christian Tudorache (Science - Institute of Biology) also managed to turn the current situation into an opportunity by introducing novel didactic methods in his BSc Biology education, such as case-based learning and flipping the classroom. Christian will explain how he used various tools such as Kaltura for teaching and Ans for examination. Finally, he will share his experience with a virtual excursion to the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC. In this webinar there will be lots of opportunities for discussion and Q&A. You are very welcome to bring your ideas and insights!

If you have additional questions, please ask them through the Remote Teaching Tile in the Helpdesk Portal.

Teaching Support Webinars

The Centre for Innovation and ICLON in coordination with faculties are organising webinars to give support on remote teaching. Webinars are held once a week and cover relevant remote teaching topics for Leiden University staff and teachers. They are available to provide up to date information and are a space to ask questions on technical and didacital needs. They are open to all teachers and staff at Leiden University and are conducted in English for inclusivity reasons.  

You can find previous topics or rewatch a webinar via the Remote Teaching channel on the Video Portal.

Webinars will be recorded in order to train Leiden University staff in the context of remote teaching. If you do not wish to be recorded, please do not turn on your camera during the class. After the webinar, the recording will be made available in the Video Portal. The recording will be available until 31 March 2022. These recordings can be used for further education if necessary.

Webinar Guidelines

To ensure a positive webinar experience for everyone, please pay attention to the following Guidelines: 

  • We will start at the designated time, no “Leids kwartiertje”. Coming in late means that you will miss out on the introduction and it will be harder to follow the story.
  • Please connect 5 minutes before the start time so that you can test your audio and webcam. Also check your browser: Kaltura Live Room works best in Chrome. 
  • Check your background for privacy. Make sure there is nothing visible that you don’t want shown. 
  • Are there other people in your home? Inform them you are in a call and you don’t want to be disturbed. 
  • Remember that the webinar will focus on pedagogy to support teachers. Other questions not answered may be submitted to ISSC helpdesk.

Do you have problems with audio or video?

  • Log out and log in again.
  • Consider using a different device (if you are on a phone, switch to a computer, or vise versa). 
  • Check your internet connection.
  • Check your browser. Kaltura Live Room works best in Chrome.
  • Contact ISSC helpdesk if the problem persists.
