Teaching Support Webinars
The Centre for Innovation and ICLON are organising webinars to give support on remote teaching. The webinars will take place from 16 March until 27 March, with possible continuation into April. Webinars are scheduled daily at 13:00 and will provide information and answer questions on technical and didacital needs for remote teaching.
They are open to all teachers and staff at Leiden University and are conducted in English.

Podcasts can be an asset to remote teaching because they offer flexibility in a way a live room or video cannot. As a teacher you can record your own podcasts quite easily, even with your mobile phone. Podcasting can take away some of the performance pressure of a live video and it’s a flexible medium for students as they can listen anywhere, anytime and get away from screens.
During this webinar, Joasia van Kooten (Centre for Innovation) will share ideas on different podcast formats and how you can get started with podcasting. Remco Breuker (Professor of Korea Studies at LU) will give insight into his use of podcasts for education, and why he recommends podcasting. His K-pod (nominated for the best podcast of 2019 news / politics category - BNR) provides background information on news about North and South Korea. Remco also creates podcast lectures for his master students.
General Guidelines for Webinars
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.
