Pioneer teachers in online education

Sometimes there is a relatively easy solution when going online, since our centre is situated at the TU Delft we pick up some things here and there. At the faculty Aerospace Engineering for instance, teachers like Roeland de Breuker and Boyang Chen were already teaching master courses online for professionals and have simply switched their on-campus students to their online courses. Similarly Calvin Rans and Michiel Schuurman are anticipating to use their online professional education in Air Safety Investigation to teach a course in Forensic Engineering to their on-campus students next quarter.

If however you are not so lucky, TU Delft's Rolf Hut, and Monique van der Veen share some tips on twitter to inspire you!
