Many students who might consider becoming a high school teacher do not have a realistic idea of what a career in front of a class looks like. To change that, Gerry Van der Kamp-Alons developed orientation modules and an education lab in which political science students develop a lesson plan together with a lecturer at the Radboud Teachers Academy and a high school teacher. This way, students learn how to bring theory into practice and step-by-step they get to know the teaching profession.
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.
