Digital Education

The arrival of COVID-19 in the Netherlands in March 2020 meant that education had to be offered online. As a teacher you have done an enormous amount of work to make this possible.

COVID-19 is still among us and online education has become commonplace. From period 3 2021 onwards, we want to focus on increasing the uniformity and quality of online education within the Graduate School of Life Sciences using the UU Lifelong Learning platform, starting with the programmes of Biomedical Sciences.

The UU Lifelong Learning platform is an online learning environment that allows you to design your course in its entirety in a simple and user-friendly manner. There is a wide choice of learning activities available for an activating and scalable didactic design. All learning activities are accommodated in the course environment: students can work independently with interactive content, collaborate on group assignments and meet each other and the teacher live in online meetings. By using the Lifelong Learning platform, students are offered a uniform learning experience throughout their entire master's program.

This year’s Introducing Life Sciences week took place on the Lifelong Learning platform. First year students have already gained experience using the platform. Meanwhile, 8 elective courses are offered on the platform and in January 2021 the new profiles will start on the platform.

From period 3 we will start developing the Biomedical courses on the Lifelong Learning platform. We are doing our utmost to ensure a smooth transition. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us through
