In this online workshop you will learn about the importance of 'being active' in learning. And of course you will be very active whilst doing so. Therefore, please be prepared to be engaged and present throughout the whole workshop (synchronous and asynchronous phases). 

In this online workshop we will cover various topics within the context of student activation in higher education, such as: 

  • student engagement and how to promote it
  • course structure and how it can influence student activity
  • motivation of students and how to boost it

We will address active learning in large lectures as well as small seminar groups with a special focus on activation in the online context. The workshop consists of synchronous and asynchronous parts. 

There will be time for individual questions.


  1. Day 1 – 4 AE synchronous session
  2. in between – 4 AE asynchronous & self-study phase
  3. Day 2 – 4 AE synchronous session


After completing this workshop, participants will...

  • be able to name, describe, analyze and apply various methods and tools that can have a positive effect on student activity in small and large groups.
  • be able to describe and apply some of the underlying principles and research results that are the foundation of the promotion of student activation.
  • be able to apply some online tools and modes of action that promote student activity in (online) teaching and learning.
