What we’re here for: good and resilient education that makes sense
We all want to offer good education. But we also need to be resilient, and make sense, when considered from a longer time-horizon.

StudioBlended approaches curricula – in the word of our clients - in a fresh, innovative, strategic – instead of ad hoc - and sustainable way.

Curriculum in its Latin origin, literally means, the course to be run, the learning journey to be taken, for a learner.

To ensure good education, you must do something with ‘blended’, which naturally involves a thoughtful integration of ‘online’ and ‘face to face’ teaching. And if it cannot be ‘blended’, let it at least be ‘bichronous’ – integrating online self-paced learning, with real-time, synchronous, online teaching.

‘Blended’ and ‘bichronous’ are mainly a design challenge.

And, we argue, that now that you’re on it with design – you can be also smart, by taking the urge to redesign into ‘blended’, as an opportunity to also redesign your (interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary) content to become more technically resilient – and last up to a decade.

When you also have both modalities close at hand, blended and bichronous, you become adaptable, and financially healthy and resilient over time.

Does this sound like something you need?

At StudioBlended we offer bespoke advice in curriculum design, blended and bichronous modalities, to academia, universities of applied science, capacity building institutions, companies, governments and beyond. We also offer trainings and ateliers with an optimal learning curve related to any of these design challenges.



Where will you find the time and energy to (re-)design?
Allow us to come alongside you, and take time and frustration out of your hands.

What makes us unique?
We are not on a mission to go ‘blended’ – we aim for resilient and good education (see our statutes).

We think with you from within your (interdisciplinary / transdisciplinary) field of expertise so that you don’t start from scratch with us content-wise.

We ensure financial health of your module, course, training or degree in the long run (well into a decade), and always design fit for purpose and modular.

We make you see with new eyes and, partnering with you, reinvision your teaching with human and technical resilience, minding not only effective teaching, but also teacher’s health and enjoyment of that teaching.

How do we work?
We work highly tailored and personalized to you, as a client, because the optimal blend is not a formula, but a unique design everywhere. And because, your time investment and time slot possibilities are also unique.

We always start with what makes sense in your golden triangle of quality, time and cost investment. With you we envision change.

And we always work agile, in uniquely curated teams of highly qualified and talented experts and artists around an assignment. The team dissolves again after we’ve accomplished our objectives with you as a client.

We never work for profit, but we do value qualitative work fairly.

What do clients say about us?
We let clients speak for us, have a look at our gallery of work, or at teacher’s testimonials across our training pages.

Our latest event and clientwork:


For this sustainable premium olive oil company, we took up the challenge to innovate with pedagogy, in order to achieve a deeper and lasting impact. We based our approach on our leading notion, that face to face time, has become absolute premium time for education. And obviously, the beauty of this product: healthy green gold and trees that may even be around here, for over 1000 years. 

“Thank you for seeing what happens when we talk about olive trees, and besides the talking, the hosting and experiencing of what they offer us.”Sarah Steendam (MSc) , participant in the curated group for the tasting.

Read on, on our events page for more insight in our experimentations and innovations for this company with unstructured time and learning spacesand participants’ reviews.

Il circolo founder tells of the olive trees and fires: “One of our old and resilient olive trees that makes you wonder what happened to it in the past.”

 Il circolo founder tells of the olive trees and fires:

”This tree burned in the devastating fires of 1998. Its trunk had a diameter of 2.5 meters. Four of its shootings have been grafted a few years after the fire and then left alone until now. We will now carefully start pruning them and hopefully they will reward us with lots of olives soon.“

Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary curriulum design

At StudioBlended we believe that a transitional state of going from polycrisis to permacrisis requires a coherent, multidimensional and resilient approach to the design of curricula.

How do we go about good education design, when reality is that we are going in and out of crises?

Allow StudioBlended to come alongside you to partner with you, and re-design the curricula - of your courses, your degrees, your trainings - to become resilient to (unexpected) shock. And, whilst you’re on it, to equally re-design your curricula, to become truly interdisciplinary (or even transdisciplinary) and technically sound, so that they resonate with the world your learners - either students or professionals - grow up into.

Here is why we believe this is what you need [read on about our advice on interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary curriculum design]

‘I would have never expected that a 30min flipchart session could be so helpful in clarifying the core aspects of a blended model for multidisciplinary integration in higher education! The UCCRN_edu [Erasmus+] project will benefit a lot from such valuable advice.’
