Virtual Video Workshop

The Dutch Virtual Workshop was developed by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the University of Groningen and is characterized by a practical approach.

You can choose for a guided tour and direct your own personal learning path.

De Dutch Virtual Workshop werd ontwikkeld door de Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam en de Universiteit van Groningen en wordt gekenmerkt door zijn praktische benadering. Het basisprincipe is dat de leerkracht, geïnspireerd door de voorbeelden in de workshop, zijn of haar eigen lesprogramma samensteld door verschillende modules te kiezen. Je kan kiezen voor een begeleide rondleiding of onmiddellijk je eigen persoonlijke leerweg.
