Students can help decide which new elective course will be offered next year at the UvA. Cast your vote and help decide which of the ten proposals will go on to the finals.
In recent months, students were given the opportunity to send in a proposal for a new interdisciplinary elective course. A total of 178 students (an absolute record!) submitted their idea and 40 of them further developed their idea into a course. The programme committee of the Create a Course Challenge has now selected the top 10, based on their degree of interdisciplinarity, social relevance and creativity. They also considered the way the course content is organised, and whether innovative work and assessment forms are used.
Anyone with a UvA ID can vote for his or her top-3 online. By doing this, you give three points to your number one, two points to number 2 and one point to your number three. Please note that you can only cast your vote once. You can vote until Monday 18 November 12:00.
During the online finale on 16 November 17:00 - 19:00h the jury decides which entry will be rewarded with the realization of the course. The jury is chaired by Karen Maex, rector magnificus of the UvA. The other two jury members are Lucy Wenting, director of the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies and Nina Hol, chair of the Central Student Council.
