We encourage all OSL staff members (i.e. OSL members with an appointment at a Dutch university) to contribute their ideas, research interests and expertise to the OSL programme. OSL can offer you an opportunity to organise a workshop or seminar about topics relating to your own research for highly motivated RMA students. You can get compensated for the work this involves in your task calculation at your local department (onderwijstaakverdeling) if it concerns a ‘substantial teaching activity’. However, OSL must submit requests for compensatory teaching dispensation at the local programme to the line managers of the local programmes far in advance. Therefore, we ask you to send your proposals for substantial teaching activities for OSL for the academic year 2017-18 to our programme director Stephan Besser (firstname.lastname@example.org) by December 1, 2016, using the attached form. Any questions concerning your proposal can also be directed to Stephan Besser. We look forward to your ideas!
