Grassroots en Grass shoots grants awarded to seven teams

29 June 2023

The winners of the Grassroots and Grass Shoots 2023-2024 have been announced. Seven (teams of) lecturers and support staff have been awarded grants to innovate their teaching in the coming acadamic year.

The seven projects are very diverse in nature: from practicing presentation skills in Virtual Reality to creating a faculty-wide Brightspace environment where faculty can experience what Brightspace really looks like for students. The two themes that recur frequently are peer feedback and (self-regulated) skill learning, both topics that fit well with the new in Vision on Blended Education.
