How do I create a poll in Zoom? How do I put a recorded video on Canvas? Education starts at the end of October in block 2. Almost all education will be online, with the necessary challenge that comes with it. The Teaching & Learning Centre of the Amsterdam Law School offers help! There is a lot of information online, but also live support via the Zoom helpdesk. Many colleagues have preceded you.

Online education requires a clear structure and good preparation. What do you expect from the students? How do you keep them involved? How do you make a clear study guide? In order to help teachers shape online education, the Amsterdam Law School Teaching and Learning Centre has set up a number of tools. They are listed below. Take advantage of them!

Devising a suitable working method for our online working groups was a challenge: the course is designed for intensive knowledge transfer and the groups are large (50 students). Throughout the entire process, we were able to count on the rapid availability of TLC, in combination with ICTO. Very nice! Irene Groenland, lecturer Private Law
