​Development & Blended Learning

The Development and Blended Learning Division has ten employees and is divided into two teams.

The development team develops and administers the various IT systems used by the department, for example library systems, research.chalmers.se and the department’s intranet. The team also provides method support to other departments in areas such as UX (User experience) and agile working methods (Scrum, Kanban, etc.).

The Blended Learning team (BLT) mainly works directly on behalf of undergraduate studies. We offer Chalmers’ teachers practical and educational support, focusing on digitisation. The aim is to improve the quality of teaching. One approach involves activities such as ‘flipped classroom’, in which the teacher turns traditional concepts on their head and provides web-based reviews instead of lectures in the classroom.

BLT develops open, online courses (Massive Open Online Courses – MOOCs). We are in charge of the entire process, roughly like a production company. We have developed seven MOOCs for Chalmers’ first micromaster programme, which is in automotive technology. Read more about Chalmers MOOCs here​.
