Perusall is an online social learning platform that can support students outside contact hours in reading and processing reading material in preparation for lectures or other contact hours. Through the Grassroot programme ‘Perusall-FNWI’, Erwin van Vliet (FNWI) has been able to use this tool in education. Together with Natasa Brouwer-Zupančič (FNWI) and Cato Drion (FNWI) he introduces Perusall, shares experiences of lecturers and students and gives tips on the use of this tool based on best practices.
During this webinar, Barend Last addresses three questions:
How can we design education in a way that facilitates online connection between student and instructor?
How can we find an optimal balance between online and face-to-face time, making use of the strengths of both and getting the most out of the limited face-to-face time?
What kind of tools can we use to strengthen connections?
Last is a specialist in Information Skills & Blended Learning at Maastricht University. Before Maastricht, Last worked at the Faculty of Humanities of the UvA, where he played an important role in Blended Learning Initiatives.
