On this page I will attempt to link to work that I helped to create, either in most cases as part of a team, or solely by my own efforts. I have attempted some categorization and may change my mind on that later.


My first presentations date back to 2014, when I did some internal presentations around the first results of MOOCs, as well as a well attended Coursera Conference panel on how to deal with negativity in courses. I have also presented at several communication seminars. Those have lost most of their usefulness, but if you are curious contact me and I can provide them. Below some of my more recent presentations.

Video & Podcasting

These productions were all made in collaboration with the mediateam of Centre for Innovation and I credit them with the quality of the production.

  • Experiencing Education in 2020 – a documentary that I co-directed on how Leiden University survived Education in 2020, with some focus on the support staff. (Jan 2021)
  • A Very Mindful Podcast: Green Spaces.
  • Five Stage Model – part of the training of moderator volunteers, explaining Gilly Salmons’ 5 stage module, and the role of the moderator.
  • Trolls & Haters – part of the training of moderator volunteers, explaining the fenomena.
  • Why is Emoderation Important? – part of the training of moderator volunteers, the basic reasons for moderation
  • The Mindful Garden – what is possible to increase biodiversity at Leiden University? The green musketeers of Centre for Innovation made this garden possible.
  • Online Study Tips – a summary of what was once the academic toolkit, in use by the Leiden MOOCs. (Script and concept by myself, voice over the wonderful Cameron Hope).

MOOCs and other digital workshops
