The Education Experience team consists out of 6 members and additionally has a promotion team. Currently, the team coach is Femke Gordijn. Nienke Raeven & Luuk Bolscher are the analysts and Nadieh Tubben is the organiser and in charge of the communication. Devie van Beek & Lenja Stok are the student assistants that support the previously mentioned employees in their tasks.
It’s my pleasure to be the Team Coach of this self-organized team. I reflect with the team on the work processes in order to improve our efficiency and impact, but also to keep a healthy team dynamics. I keep an eye on the wellbeing of the individual team members. Furthermore I look at the organizational context and relevance of the assignments – are we doing the right things, and support with the strategic developments. In the end we would like to contribute towards improvements within the larger organization and the educational system of Wageningen University. I also work for the Education Support Centre of Wageningen University & Research.
It is my job to analyse all information gathered during the group sessions and identify the pain points and opportunities for improvement. Subsequently, I visualise the findings to provide actionable insight for change. I am interested in people and like to understand and help reshape patterns, so circumstances for people improve. This is what drives me. The creative aspect of the student journeys makes it a lot of fun!
My name is Nadieh Tubben and I am responsible for the recruitment of teachers and students within the Education Experience Team. Together with the promoteam we will try to inform as many people as possible about the importance of Edcuation Experience. I really like the fact that the wishes and needs of students and teachers is centralised within the different projects of WUR.
My name is Luuk and I’m one of the Analysts within the team. My main job is to analyze the information we gather in the different group sessions and present it in an attractive, visual way. We use these reports to present our findings to different stakeholders within WUR, so that the valuable insights students, teachers and employees provide us with can actually be incorporated into different services, (IT-)systems and other aspects of our university. I’m an analytically driven person and find most of my joy in puzzling with our data and creatively presenting the outcomes.
My name is Devie and I work as a student assistant within the Education Experience team. On one hand, my task within the team is to support the organising activities around the Education Experience sessions, which will be organised for students, alumni, teachers and other staff of the WUR. On the other hand, it is my job to support the activities of formatting the data which can be used for analytics. Both parts of the jobs show how nice it is to be involved with improving the education and how your opinion is shared among other students. It gives me enery to work with enthusiastic people, gather ideas and work at WUR as it is an organisation where education is formed by and for students.
My name is Lenja Stok and I am a Student Assistant within the Education Experience Team. It is my job to support the promotion team, who actively recruit students for upcoming sessions. Besides, I help to prepare new sessions, digitize data for further analysis and inform students, teachers and alumni about our sessions. Working in this enthusiastic team gives me a lot of energy as our sessions have a concrete impact on the improvement of the university. In addition, I am challenged to think out of the box, which motivates me. It is my main goal to eventually make other students just as excited about our sessions!
There is an Education Experience promoteam to inform students about the upcoming sessions and to maintain the social media channels. The promoteam consists of: Ilse Reus; Laura Veltkamp; Giovanni Passuello & Krijn Slangen.
