Comenius Leadership Project (2018-2022): Boundary Crossing as modus opernandi @ WUR.
Member of the Core Team.
Boundary crossing competence, the competence to work together with others outside ones own scientific domain, institute, culture or context, is regarded as one of the major competencies needed by future university graduates in order to respond better to emerging global challenges. Boundary crossing is also at the forefront of the new educational vision of Wageningen University and has been a topic of its educational innovation and research. At Wageningen University, there is a need to address boundary crossing more explicitly and structurally throughout the diverse curricula both at the bachelor and master level, as well as policy level. A comprehensive overview of existing practices is needed, as is (scientific) insight in how boundary crossing competence develops in students and is best supported by teachers and educational environments.

Challenge Based Education @ WUR and beyond
From 2018 on, Wageningen University organized extracurricular Challenges for Student Teams like the Urban Greenhouse Challenge and ReThink Protein Challenge. With these challenges, Wageningen university aims to contribute to talent development by expanding the WUR education ecosystem. They also aim to stimulate innovation, preparing students to work on contemporary (wicked) issues and fill the gap between education and start-ups or business in general. In addition to these challenges, other initiatives connecting with challenge-based learning, such as the Food 4 Health and Safety Challenge are present at the learning environment of Wageningen University.
Within this project we also collaborate within the 4TU as well as the Strategic Alliance WUR-UMC-UU-TU/e
