The Education Experience team consists out of 7 members and additionally has a promotion team. Currently, the team coach is Femke Gordijn. Gerben Sjoerdstra, Luuk Bolscher & Nienke Raeven are the analysts and Nadieh Tubben is the organiser and in charge of the communication. Paul Mol & 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.
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.
One of the tasks I do within the team is connecting and visualizing data, this helps the team gain more insight on how and where we can improve the processes in our team. With these insights I work to optimize and standardize these processes so we can improve our sessions even more. It brings me joy to challenge myself to make the jobs of others easier and more efficient!
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.
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!
Hello, my name is Paul and I work as a Student Assistant within the Education Experience team. My tasks are mainly behind the scenes, making sure the sessions and the analytics of the sessions run smoothly. This for instance involves handling the student experience emails, arranging the rewards for the participants and making sure all opinions are categorised correctly. This job allows me to be creative and work on projects that inspire me, within an awesome team that genuinely cares for each other. I am grateful to be able to work for the Education Experience team, as it enables me to contribute to changing the university for the better, while attending the university myself!
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!
