The UvA Create a Course Challenge
The Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies challenges all UvA students to help think about how education should be organised, what courses should be taught, the kinds of methods that should be used and the roles students and lecturers should play. The UvA Create a Course Challenge is calling students to explore uncharted terrain and think about ways to make education fun, challenging and meaningful.
The winning course will be launched in the following academic year as an interdisciplinary elective course, open to all UvA students. For more information about the challenge, please visit the website of the Create a Course Challenge.
