Projects round 1 announced!

On the deadline of June 06, 25 projects came in, from all programs. In the weeks that followed, the project team (Blanckaert, Roodenburg and Smet) looked at each application and assessed them on criteria such as relevance, necessity, community building, educational activity, reasonableness and innovation. In addition, they took into account the conditions of the Voorsprongfonds (including a focus on the sustainability of experiments), the proposed guidelines, the objectives of the project and the temporary (!) available budget. Some projects needed some additional explanation. The following projects were accepted (in full or partial version) (in order of submission):

With some projects we are still discussing the feasibility and sustainability. Therefore they were not yet included in the overview. As you can see, the projects have school-wide representation (education committees, departments, professional and academic ba/ma), although strictly speaking this is not a criterion for selection.

The next round ends on October 10, 2022. For the 2nd round (10.10.2022), we want to focus more explicitly on projects related to educational development and lifelong learning (think modular learning, in-service training programs, pre-training programs and summer schools). The selection committee (now consisting of Blanckaert, Roodenburg and Smet) will be supplemented by two members of the Education Council as from the second round.
