MEBIT master 2014

Evidence based werken in het onderwijs; MEBIT

Geen veronderstellingen of vooroordelen maar feiten

Evidence based innovation – wetenschappelijk onderbouwde vernieuwing – houdt in dat docenten zich niet laten leiden door veronderstellingen of vooroordelen, maar door feiten. Ideeën voor onderwijsvernieuwing zijn er genoeg, de vraag is: wat werkt? Die vraag vormt het uitgangspunt van het MEBIT-programma. Het eerste programma is in maart 2009 in Maastricht van start gegaan.

In september 2014 start de volgende MEBIT opleiding, zowel in Maastricht als in Amsterdam.

  • MEBIT is een programma ter grootte van één jaar (60 ects), maar is opgezet als een tweejarige parttime opleiding.
  • Het is ook mogelijk onderdelen (modules) van het volledige programma te volgen, welke worden afgesloten met een certificaat van deelname
  • MEBIT resulteert in het diploma Master of Science in Evidence-based Innovation in Teaching.
  • MEBIT is NVAO geaccrediteerd.
