Groot nationaal onderzoek onder docenten

Monday, April 3rd, 2006, posted by Djoerd Hiemstra
Onderwijs aan het woord biedt docenten en onderwijsondersteuners in alle onderwijssectoren de kans hun mening te geven over hun beroep. Het is het eerste grote, nationale onderzoek waarin de mening van de meer dan 350.000 onderwijsprofessionals wordt gevraagd over de dagelijkse praktijk van het onderwijs. Zij bepalen welke thema’s op de agenda komen.

Het laten horen van je mening kan gemakkelijk door het invullen van een webenquete voor 21 april (kost minder dan 20 minuten). In juni 2006 zal op basis van de enquete een agenda met concrete verbeterpunten worden aangeboden aan minister Van der Hoeven en staatssecretaris Rutte van Onderwijs.

Lecture 1

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006, posted by Djoerd Hiemstra
Even though I had to do lecture 1 on the blackboard, there are slides to this lecture and they are available in the Roster and Archive. I hope the lecture was not too chaotic due to these circumstances. Nevertheless, in order to really master DTD’s, XPath and XQuery on a sufficient level, you will have to use self-study using tutorials, homework series 1 and some experimenting of your own with the on-line demos. Furthermore, this was a rather atypical lecture, because all other lectures are based on research papers, so they have a more research flavour.
