Kick-off meeting SIG Academic (Learning) Communities

Tuesday 14 May 2024, 12 pm - 1:30 pm

On 14 May, the Special Interest Group Academic (Learning) Communities will be launched. Are you interested and/or do you want to contribute to this initiative? Then sign up for the kick-off meeting.

NB: This meeting takes place in TvA1.00.36.

Learning in communities works! Learning communities can consist of different parties, for example, students, PhD candidates, and lecturers. But collaborations between social organisations, the government and private companies in the educational context are also examples of learning communities. Although learning communities have been used effectively in higher education before, facilitating these types of communities remains a challenge.  

Among other things, this SIG wants to ensure that initiatives on this subject are bundled and that they are then made visible and accessible. This way, learning in communities can also contribute to the quality of education at Radboud University.


  • Building a community of related experts, professionals, interested parties and supporters. 
  • Mapping the current landscape of academic activities (education, research, policy) that take place in communities and making them visible and accessible. 
  • Facilitating knowledge sharing and inspiration about communities in academic activities. 
  • Facilitating and executing joint projects and grant applications.
