This course gives students an opportunity to empower themselves in their function as member of a Programme Committee (PC) of the Education Institute (OWI). It is also instructive for members of other governing bodies.

The course (one evening) focuses on four issues. The first one is very general on governance and organisation of Wageningen University, the second one on funding of courses and other financial issues, the third one is about the main agenda items of OWI’s various Programme Committees: the annual Education Modification Cycle (EMC), the Education and Examination Regulations (EER) and the system of accreditation of study programmes, including the internal quality assurance system, the fourth one on the tasks, responsibilities and authorities of a Programme Committee and its members.

Lecturer: Prof.dr. Tiny van Boekel, Director of the Education Institute (OWI) and Dean of Education

The course will be given in English (unless only Dutch speaking persons are present). More information about the Educational Institute OWI:
