Abstract: This presentation demonstrates how lecturers may use the open online resource TREAT (https://treat.au.dk/home-eng) for inspiration and development of learning activities. The website was launched in 2015. The idea was to showcase well-functioning examples where technology is not just used for technology’s own sake. There has to be a pedagogical purpose. The overall goal of the website is to link typical teaching challenges (i.e. large classes, establishing a safe learning environment) with different teaching activities, technologies and not least testimonials and cases from fellow lecturers. This is reflected in the site’s multi-entrance structure that allows teachers to find answers regardless of their initial question. For instance, if a lecturer seeks ideas for how to activate students, he will be guided through activities, choice of technology and tutorials. Or he may be guided from the use of a student response system like Mentimeter to activating students.
