University education is designed to teach and train cognitive skills. However, for professional and personal skills such as cooperation, setting boundaries and dealing with uncertainties, this form of education does not lend itself adequately.
Carolin Ossenkop invites students to get out of the lecture hall and interact with horses. Indeed, interacting with horses lends itself perfectly to learning and practising personal and professional skills. Horses are forgiving, honest and sensitive to their environment, making them respond directly and intuitively to body language and behaviour.
Discover at this innovation lunch how Carolin has developed her teaching off the beaten track and how it has helped students in developing skills.
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. 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.
