There are a number of practical issues that need to be sorted well in advance to the actual dates that the course is being taught to ensure the smooth progression of all processes.
A Solis-ID is needed to provide access to Osiris and Blackboard. If you work at the Faculty of Science or Veterinary Sciences, you automatically receive a Solis-ID and password when you are appointed at the university. If you work at UMCU, you can arrange a Solis-ID for teachers.
Depending on the faculty where the course will be taught you can contact:
- UMCU - Get a Solis-ID for teachers via website of the UMC Utrecht. Ask the Blackboard coordinator (Sape van der Werf) to give you designer-rights for your course.
- Science Faculty - send an email to Science.Blackboard@uu.nl.
- If you work at the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences and want to use Blackboard, please contact email@example.com or the Education Office of your Faculty.
A teaching room has to be requested in due time, sometimes up to 10 months in advance.
To have an efficient schedule procedure, it is important to meet the deadlines. The schedule procedure is divided in 4 educational periodes of 10 - 19 weeks and each period has its own application deadline. More general information about the schedule proces can be found here (only in Dutch).
The contact person for Biomedical Sciences is Monique Helten.
Around December, the programme coordinator provides the scheduler of the faculty of Science an overview of the courses that will be offered in the next academic year. The scheduler of the faculty of Science will contact each course coordinator to submit the schedule of the course together with the content for the Osiris catalogue. A suitable schedule will be made and communicated to the course coordinator. The schedule of courses of the first semester will be complete at the end of July, the schedule of the courses of the second semester will be complete at the beginning of January.
The contact person for Biosciences is Hans Luijendijk.
