Welcome to MARCHET

Teachers in higher education are dealing with a new generation of students. For these students, technology is part of their lives. This means that teachers have to look at their education in a different way. They not only need insight in the principles of learning, they also have to be able to decide whether the use of a technology enhances this learning and to choose the most effective didactical approach.

Goal

MARCHET aims at improving student success by professionalizing teachers in the use of technology in a didactical sound manner. To reach this goal, MARCHET provides teachers with 4 online modules. The themes of these modules are:
- collaborative knowledge building
- web 2.0
- measuring knowledge and insight
- supervising students in distance learning

Target audience

MARCHET is developed for teachers, teacher trainers and experts in the domain of educational technology, in higher education.
