TU Delft starts Extension School for online education

A small but import step for Delft University of Technology. Today we announced the appointments of a Dean of Open and Online Education and a  Director of Education for Open and Online Education:

The Executive Board of TU Delft has appointed Professor Rob Fastenau, Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science as Dean of Open and Online Education. Dr Ernst ten Heuvelhof, Director of Education in the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management is to take on the role of Director of Open and Online Education.

Together they wil lead an innovation programme to realize the strategy of TU Delft for the next phase of open and online education. Within two years, we will realize a Delft Extension School, based on the model of the Harvard Extension School, in which the open and online education is offered to students from around the world.

In this new extension school we will bundle all of our existing activities, such as OpenCourseWare, DelftX, Online Distance Education and Blended Bachelor programmes, and will expand this with new online and blended courses. I will be responsible for the production and delivery of all this courses. An interesting and exiting new challenge for me and our team.
