The sixth edition of the Tygron EDU Event will take place on Thursday, April 8, 2021 from 14:00 to 16:30 (CET).

A useful meeting in which the members of the Tygron education network are given the opportunity to inspire each other and share experiences.

Tygron EDU Manual: Best-Practices from Education

Watch the complete recap here:

During last year’s Tygron EDU Event, there appeared to be a need for a handbook for implementing the use of the Tygron Platform in education. We started working with this feedback and that is why we would like to share this new manual with you during the upcoming Event. In this manual the experiences, the learning objectives and the design of training courses in which the Tygron Platform is used are shared. During the Event on April 8, those involved from the educational network and the professional work field will take you through the manual and share experiences. And answer questions like:

  • How do I link the use of the software to my learning objectives?
  • How many hours do I have to schedule for the assignment?
  • What is a realistic end product to ask the student?
  • How does the use of the software fit within an internship and / or graduation assignment?
  • How is the knowledge transferred to the student with regard to the use of the software?
  • What background do students need to be able to work with the software?
  • How can I add depth to a graduation assignment by using the Tygron Platform?

The programm:
