TLC sympodium - Studying: conducting rather than suffering

Thursday 15 June 2023, 1 pm - 5 pm

During this 'sympodium', students of Radboud University will take the stage and present inspiring examples from their own study practice and student life. Together, we look at how students and lecturers can interactively collaborate to improve their development.

The student as the director of their own development

As a student, what do you think about the education you receive here? Do you have enough room to direct your own development? Do you even want to be in control? Do you want to be viewed as a novice colleague by your lecturers? Do your lecturers want to view you as such? So that together you form an academic community, which, while learning, moves the world forward? During this sympodium, you can contribute your thoughts on how you as a student can improve your development together with lecturers. 

Students are still often unfairly seen as passive products, while they are much more than that 

Student Isa Witteveen about her vision on education

The lecturer as the supervisor of the learning process

As a lecturer, do you give your students room to direct their own development? Why or why not? What if we view students as novice colleagues? What does this mean for our education and the interaction between students and lecturers? During this sympodium, you can come and listen to students' experiences and inspiring examples from their study practice.

About the programme

During the sympodium there will be plenary activities and workshops. On the day itself you can put together your own programme. We will conclude the day with drinks.
