Learning Communities | "There is more to life than just grasping knowledge"

05 april 2017
Elisa Abbas and Marieke Zwaan

Every faculty of the University of Groningen has its own Learning Communities. Learning Communities provide a kind of safe haven where teachers and students come together with companies and alumni and start working on a specific project. They choose their own goal and direction. Small groups, personal responsibility, real life projects, free choice of topics - these aspects make Learning Communities a wonderful means for enhancing the professional development of students.


"I really recommend other students to participate in one of the Learning Communities this university has to offer. It's a great opportunity."

- Elisa Abbas, Master student International Economics and Business from Finland


Experiences

Elisa Labbas (left) and Marieke Zwaan (right) worked at developing the case of a nickel mine in Papua New Guinea for the Learning Community Social Impact Assessment of Global Investments. Marieke: "We tried to develop teaching material and we discovered that this can take way longer than you think! You have to look at totally new aspects - it is very different from being a student. Next semester I want to sign up for the Learning Community Programming. I like doing extra's. And I can add them to my LinkedIn-profile." Elisa highly recommends other students to participate in one of the Learning Communities this university has to offer: "It's a great opportunity. The topic we studied was closely related to what I have been learning. Making a case study was new to me. It was very concrete, very interesting."
