Transformation of Offline to INline Education (FINE)

How do you support students in times of increasing needs for flexible education? And how do you make sure your institution stays relevant to your students? At the Fontys University of Applied Sciences these questions are being addressed as part of the Fontys INline Education (FINE) project. Inline education is the optimal combination of online and offline education. The activities of the project focusses on different levels, such as providing an internal call for tender, the formation of a community, research related to inline education, teacher training, and optimization of the infrastructure.
