Student Council Members in Engineering from the Technical University of Delft (TU Delft) in the Netherlands visited UQ on 9 February 2015 to research how active learning is applied in UQ courses. Their visit included a tour of the UQx facilities in the Institute for Teaching and Learning Innovation (ITaLI) and consultation with the UQx Director John Zornig and ITaLI Learning Designer Dom McGrath to discuss the progress UQ is making towards wide application of flipped and blended learning across UQ programs. They were eager to hear about the focus of UQx in applying scalable online learning techniques developed in MOOCs to the implementation of flipped classes. TU Delft is one of the partners in edX with UQ and was visited by a delegation from UQx in June 2014.
