Tutorials will largely still take place online and some on campus again. Below, you will find information about the various possibilities for providing tutorials, fitting work forms, suitable tools and available support.

Online tutorials

  • For tutorials that both the lecturer and the students participate in remotely, Microsoft Teams can be used. Instructions, interactions and group assignments then all take place in Teams. Besides that, files can be shared and saved in Teams. Please read the manual Teams for education for more information.
  • Lecturers can also provide tutorials from working-group rooms on campus. Students then all join online via Teams. This can be done in lecture rooms for dynamic teaching that are specially equipped for this by FSC.

Tutorials on campus

  • Tutorials can take place on campus for both lecturers and students in some cases, provided that the 1.5-metre distance is observed. It is possible that a number of national and international students have/want to join via MS Teams. More information on this hybrid education situation can be found here.

Work forms for in your work-group meeting.

For remote tutorials, we recommend that students are to prepare the subject matter or make an assignment themselves and put their finished versions of it online. This can be further elaborated on during the tutorial. Some examples of finished versions of assignments are:

  • A short video pitch that students record themselves, in which they present their answers to the assignments.
  • Having them submit their assignments as posts on the discussion forum in MS Teams or Blackboard.

In this educational database, you will find more work forms that you can use in your online, hybrid or on-campus tutorial.

Available tools

  • MS Teams: for an online meeting (with multiple people or one-on-one) or in order to work on an assignment together, we advise you to use Microsoft Teams (Office 365). Everyone with a UU Solis-ID can log in on this.
  • Pitch2Peer: with this tool, students can make video pitches and share them with each other.
  • Mentimeter: a tool with which you can easily make quizzes, polls or presentations in order to add more interaction to your tutorial. The use of Mentimeter is permitted until 18 October 2021. 
  • For more information on tools, you can view the tool guide of Educate-it.
