Didactic remembrance and online research
Mirjam de Bruijn, professor of contemporary history and anthropology of Africa, will share her knowledge about digital possibilities for creativity, transparency and critical reflection. She wants to build bridges within the Humanities in the 21st century.
Senior university lecturer of literary studies, Frans Willem Korsten, will teach according to the model "flipping the classroom". 'That's not a quick fix', he says. 'It requires a thorough didactic rethinking of the material and implies a radically different pedagogical attitude. Assessments and grades do not play a prominent part in this model.'
Noa Schonmann, university lecturer in Middle East Studies, talks about a project that makes it easier for students to access primary resources in complex databases. 'We encourage students to turn to primary sources published all around the world and to try to get them out of their "comfort zone". Today's students may be digitally literate, but online databases are increasingly complex and students need to develop the specialized skills needed to conduct online professional research.'
Vision on teaching and learning
All study programmes of the Faculty of Humanities are continuously working on innovations in education within the framework of the Educational Approach of the university Learning@LeidenUniversity. The humanities faculty prioritises the ambitions 'interdependence of education and research', 'labour market orientation' and 'skills'. Study programmes can apply to renew their education on these themes. In 2018 and 2019, a total of around 30 innovation projects are running.
