Education Experience session

Education Experience

Wageningen University & Research wants to improve the information and services for and the communication with students and teachers. Education Experience tries to centralize 'our customer', the students, teachers alumni and staff, by listening to their needs. The input will be analysed and the outcomes of this will be an advice for the university on how to improve the education as a whole.

Due to the Covid-19 virus our Education Experience sessions will be held online. You can sign up by clicking on the orange button below.

The Education Experience team, part of the department Education & Student Affairs, maps the wishes and needs of students and teachers. To do that we make use of various methods:

During the sessions students and employees will map a specific journey with use of a persona. These persona all represent a part of our target group. From the perspective and needs of each persona a journey will be developed.

We are currently working on the following topics:

Blended Education (students)

In the make your mark sessions on ‘Blended education’ we will evaluate the courses of period 1 which made use of a combination of on-campus and online activities. These exists in two forms: blended & hybrid education:

  1. Blended Education: A course with online and on campus activities;
  2. Hybrid Education: A course in which the class is divided in two groups, some go to the activity on campus while the others follow it simultaneously online from home.

You can only participate in these sessions when you followed either one of these or both of these educational forms. During the sessions both forms will be evaluated and results will be published under the name of Blended Education.

Study any time, any place (students)

In the design thinking sessions on ‘Study Anytime Anyplace’ (it used to be called Bring Your Own Device, BYOD) we will look into following education on your own device anytime and anyplace. Using the new system will make it possible for students to study wherever and whenever they want. However, ideas and input from students is neccessary to implement the system as optimal as possible. During the sessions, students work on different cases and design solutions for existing problems that currently occur.

All students are welcome to join this session. Student can choose a topic of their interest. The topics are: Service & support; Communication & awareness; Use of WUR Appstore & Hardware (offer of laptop & CANS set).
