Research Driven Education + Learning Communities

Malvina Nissim | 15 | "Learning from teaching: doing research with students"

I will describe my own experience with involving (master) students in state-of-the-art international research, focusing on practical aspects, benefits for all parties involved, and suggestions for implementing this strategy in fields other than mine.

Eva van der Wal, Geertje Bruijn, Casper de boer, Isidora Cvetkovska | 23 | “ Students' view on educational topics such as Research-driven education”

As studentassessors, we have the unique opportunity to experience education from the policy-making as well as the student side. One question we would like to discuss is how to combine RDE with students' knowledge of different approaches to a certain topic.

Ferry van Kann | 20 | Graduate Research Day: the next level of master thesis presentations”

On Graduate Research Day student researchers get the stage. The Graduate Research Day serves 3 goals. (1) Showcase the research performed at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences. (2) Provide a platform to recognize and reward students that have performed excellent research. (3) Provide a network opportunity for students, staff members and professionals.

Nina Hansen and Liesbet Heyse | 24 | The Societal Challenge Lab - bridging science and society”

The interdisciplinary “Societal challenge lab” offered students a unique learning experience to apply scientific knowledge to the societal challenge of the labour market integration of first generation migrants. Students from different cultural backgrounds and study programs within BSS worked under time pressure consulted experts, interviewed refugees, and conducted evidence-driven problems analyses and proposed new proposals to societal actors to improve current practice.

Bas Blom and Pauline Schreuder | 29 | "From chalk to walk"

Apart from learning about and performing research, students need to learn to read and think like researchers, i.e. autonomous and critical. Our presentation discusses how ALC-tutors take up a hybrid mix of roles and an activating pedagogy to coach students in developing an academic attitude, while working on research-oriented assignments.

Katja Mehlhorn | 18 | " Artificial Intelligence in Learning Communities?"

In the presentation I will discuss the goals behind learning communities (LCs), as well as our experiences with it. Each LC was supervised by two teaching assistants who also functioned as mentors. I will show preliminary results of an extensive evaluation project that identified both strengths and weaknesses of the approach.

Berend Roorda | 31 | “How integration of research into education leads to a win-win situation”

I would like to tell you something about how we integrate our research into our education and how this has led to students whom we have found willing to support us in our own scientific research.
