Courses: explanation   

My website contains information for the students of some of my courses.

Internet course Asylum Seekers Centre Crailo:

During this course my students and I made use of the internet classroom of the primary school of the centre. There was no Virtual Learning Environment available. To make it possible to communicate with my students during and after the lessons, I created a virtual environment on my website.  

Study  educational theory (pedagogic)  at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.

The University offers higher professional education at bachelor level. I taught students, who where enrolled after the course already had been started. At the start of the new study year took it a very long time before the students and I had access to the Virtual learning Environment  of the Institute. That's one of the reasons why I decided to use the space of my own homepage to communicate with them (2005).

Course Needlework primary school Julianaschool Kwartellaan:

I work since 2011 voluntary as a teacher needle work on a primary school.
We use the internet and the computer with the instruction and demonstration of the techniques.
I use my website also to inform the colleagues and other volunteers an as a deposit for the teaching and instruction material.

Other reasons to place course materials on my website:

  • Most of the time I was not present at the location of the students, except during the lessons. That's why the Internet was a good alternative to make it possible to provide information.
  • Even after I was not working anymore at the asylum centre and the HvA, the information remained accessible for my students and we were not dependent on accounts of the computer systems of the institutes. However I have removed al the dated links.
  • At last but not at least offered it me a chance to experiment with communication in electronic learning environments.
