1st year network. Meeting in January 2018
We would like to invite all interested colleagues to a new meeting in the network on first year PBL. In light of the presentations and discussions at the last meeting, the topic of our next meeting is “supervision of projects at first year”. Thus, we will address and discuss topics such as: what is the role and responsibilities of the supervisor at first year, how do students experience supervision at first year, what is the trademarks of supervisors at first year, what should be the focal points in supervising groups at first year, how can supervisors motivate students? The meeting is organized around some of these questions, which we will discuss in smaller groups.

JPBLHE - Special issue: Blended Learning in Architecture and Design Education
The aim of this special issue is to elucidate current practices and experiences of mixing traditional, physical, location-specific and face-to-face modes of learning with online learning formats – altogether known as blended learning. In the design disciplines, this poses particular challenges, as design learning has traditionally been deeply rooted in practices which involve interaction with both people – peers and instructors – and physical matter.
