TU Delft wanted to know how good (or not) their social media channels are, compared to other international institutes. The result is a benchmark of the quality of – mainly Twitter – conversations. Which questions are asked? What is the quality of the answer? What makes people engage more with the university? How pleased are people with the online service?
If you want to find out how TU Delft did or if you want to find out if your university is in the international top 10, attend this session.
Globalization keeps speeding up and civilzations are getting closer and closer. In an online world where cultures try to exchange, are there guidelines for international communication? We will review what works and what doesn’t to make intercultural communication smoother and avoid micro-clashes of civilizations.

How can a university build and maintain a relationship with a student that was never on-campus? TU Delft will share some of its lessons of one year experience of MOOCs and online courses.
Some topics we will touch upon:
- The MOOC – a relationship builder or a short-lived connection?
- Communication approach during the MOOC.
- Should we at all stay in touch after the MOOC is over, and how to do that?
- The working professionals, and their needs.
- Going through this paradigm shift inside the university.
Massive Open Online Courses are one big international classroom, and teachers reach a larger audience worldwide than could ever be possible on campus. What are the challenges and benefits of communicating with a classroom you only meet online? How does the diversity of cultures influence your teaching and the interaction between students? In this unconference style workshop Professor Richard Griffiths shares how he experienced teaching such a large and diverse audience and is open to all your questions.
