‘Fit for purpose’ consultancy:
for university teachers


“You [Tikvah] are able to learn/absorb the subject that I’m trying to produce, and you transform it to a methodological angle, and organise it is such a way that it directs me, and I can do things in a more effective and efficient way”.

Tannya Pico, PhD candidate doing researrch into Nature Based Solutions (NBS) and transdisciplinarity, from Quito, Ecuador  Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS), Erasmus University, Rotterdam


“It works because, instead of another "method", what Tikvah delivers is individually tailored consultancy. She first listens, then she suggests new paths and possibilities for implementing our work differently, without losing what each individual cares about most. “

Our competitive consultancy for university teachers, are fit for purpose, and offer punctual interventions. They are part of our vision for capacity building in higher education.

For the overarching logic, see the course portal. Or get a quick impression with our 1 table overview showing you the differences between the variations.

Do you have to design, develop and deliver a (new) course or module?

Did you never get the time, or chance to follow a teacher training/qualification?

Haven’t you worked with blended before - past emergency education online?

And are you pressed on time, so that a full teacher training is too much to ask now?

As StudioBlended we came up with something especially for you: the ‘fit for purpose package’.

Its unique quality is that you can already begin, regardless of your setting and context, to technically improve your teaching design and your technical skills on the job.

Why not ask your employer to support you? Have a look here why we believe that makes total sense.

1. Our ‘fit for purpose’ consultancy consists of a package.
We follow this simple set-up if you’re designing or developing:

1.     30 - 60 min onboarding (our teacher trainer listens to your problem, to understand where you are stuck, what you’re trying to do).
2. You send a one-page document with a more specific explanation of your issue
3. 1-hour alongside advice giving you several alternatives - if possible in a live meeting, alternatively in a call. Suggestions for modules from the SudiOpedia (audio podcasts and assignments) where relevant to equip you with technique.
4. You choose one alternative, and work on the actual design / development and send it in as a draft or (depending on your issue) send in a final plan for the way forward
5. Final consultancy, if possible in a live meeting, alternatively in a call

Price: the ‘fit for purpose’ consultancy package card costs 250,- euro net upfront.

Transport compensation If you meet in person with the teacher trainer, and there are travel costs involved, these are to be met by the client.

Timing: throughout the academic year.

Valid: The package is valid throughout 1-2 seasons as fits your situation - we want to be here especially for you, when you need it. We follow your organic pace, but if you need us too – we can also stimulate you to actually ensure finalisation and a certain due date. 

For whom?
If you are pressed for time and this is not the right moment for you to take a teacher training course (see resilience course) these two options are highly tailored and personalised, whereby our teacher trainer/senior consultant can simply come alongside you, right where you are.  

Content
Have a look at the technical fields Tikvah Breimer (MSc MEd MSc) usually works in content-wise, so that you can be assured you do not start from scratch but can interact “high over”, using your own technical words/worldview (discourse/paradigm) and get right to the essence of where you’re stuck.
