Do you remember the experiment with the vacuum chamber in the physics classroom? Even when you saw with your own eyes the feather and the marble drop down at the same speed, it was hard to understand that frictional force alone ensures that this does not happen in the normal world. It is comforting to know that even for physics students, this remains an abstract concept. Virtual reality can help you experience something where hearing and seeing fall short of really understanding something. Jan van Riswick developed a game that lets you experience the unimaginable first-hand.
Lunch with an inspirational boost
Comenius grants and TLC vouchers make it possible for lecturers at Radboud University and the Radboudumc to develop all sorts of interesting educational innovations. But it is a pity if only students see the result of all that hard work. And sometimes these innovative lecturers can still use some practical help, a networking contact, or a fresh idea to overcome an obstacle, or to make their innovation more broadly applicable.
That is why the Radboud Teaching and Learning Centre is organising the TLC Innovation Lunch every first Monday of the month from November onwards. Lecturers, educational support workers, and other interested parties can meet each other here to let themselves be inspired by a Radboud colleague's innovative project and have a tasty meal in the meantime.
