About the HUB model:
The goal of the Online Learning HUB is to support and facilitate TU Delft faculty to teach and develop online courses with teachers as active and reflective participants. However, the HUB is useful for everyone involved in online course development.
TU Delft lecturers who are interested in creating a new online course or program can apply for support at the Extension School via a tender procedure.
Our teachers need to be able to acquire information, share, discuss and connect to new concepts and strategies that relate to their own unique situation, experiences and needs. The Online Learning HUB, which draws on our day-to-day course development and teaching experiences, will increase incrementally.
- A portal site with basic functionalities for communication, information retrieval, blogs, etc. which can connect or add (integrate) other tools such as social media like Facebook and Twitter. This is the technical and functional framework for the ‘Online Learning HUB’.
- The content is organized in line with the workflow of a standardized online course design template (in this case the ADDIE model is used), that is tuned to the quality standards for the design of online learning.
- The design is participatory, learner centered and self-directed. It is meant to facilitate and support the teacher developing and applying online teaching and learning.
This 3-layered HUB will gradually develop aiming to improve professional development and support teachers to better deal with the TU Delft Online Learning procedures and content. The model and content is available (CC-BY 4.0) for other institutions to create their own HUB.
The HUB is an initiative of the TU Delft Extension school in collaboration with the Systems Engineering Department (Faculty TPM). Founders are Nelson Ribeiro Jorge, Linda Mebus and Pieter de Vries. The HUB is maintained by TU Delft Teaching and Learning Services. TU Delft Extension School is the support organization for all TU Delft Online Learning courses.
