Haarhuis himself is very happy with how he succeeded in, for instance, implementing the Educate-it programme in Utrecht: “Colleagues' university-wide involvement and dedication, the positive response to the programme and the fun and involvement of many people in this process is enormous. Fantastic Educate-it teams have been set up - university-wide and in every faculty - that work in close proximity to the lecturers. This can be attributed to, among other factors, the commitment of the faculties and the collaboration with the university's Educate-it team."
SURF EDUCATION AWARDS
Education innovation by means of ICT only works when people commit to it. SURF wants to recognize the efforts of these 'change makers' who make a difference within their teaching institutes. The SURF Education Awards were presented for the first time this year, but will from now on be presented every year to a lecturer, an ICT and educational professional and a governor.
The jury consists of Paul Rullmann (President of SURF), Rob van Leeuwen (a member of the Programme Advisory Board and an Educational Technologist at VU Amsterdam), Pieter Cornelissen (Programme Manager of Education Innovation at HU University of Applied Sciences) and Christien Bok (Programme Manager Customized Education, SURFnet).
