After being involved in the setup of the MSc Robotics programme, I'm now taking on the role of master coordinator and Challenge-Based Learning teacher/coordinator in this programme.
Within the MSc Robotics, Challenge Based Learning plays an important role; each quartile students will work on a challenge in a student team composed of students from different specialisations and profiles. Within this challenge students should also incorporate components of the courses they are involved in in that quartile in their challenge. This makes these challenges not only challenging for the students, but also for the teachers and other stakeholders. In my role as CBL coordinator I will work on guidelines for students and teachers, provide introductory courses on CBL, guide students, teachers and CBL coaches through the CBL process, and assess the final CBL work of the students.
