    With over 50 health & safety alerts each day, the world is never a stable environment. Yet, we choose to send out our students and staff all over the world for a study abroad experience.  

    In this workshop we'll provide you with the latest on the approach of the UT regarding safety, security and health: before, during and after a crisis situation (for example, Covid-19, the Australian bushfires & the Hong Kong protests.) We'll discuss a situation affecting, or which may affect, our community in a mobility trajectory. We'll explain how we navigate a fluid situation, what we contemplate in each step, what to look out for, and why we choose our next steps.

    Worldwide calamity events challenge us on a continuous basis. This is a moment to share knowledge and different views on calamities, and determine our collective best and worst practices and approaches.

    The Behavioural, Management and Social Sciences (BMS) Lab is a high-tech environment fostering innovative solutions to social challenges. The lab works to help scientists and students of the social sciences harness the opportunities offered by new technologies for research. The lab hosts a wide range of facilities and an even wider range of equipment. This includes everything from a Virtual Reality (VR) and an EEG lab, to a wide range of sensors and recording equipment.  

    The virtual tour is set up for those who are not experts in the specific field, as well as for the experts. A brief overview of the various opportunities at the research lab will be provided and you will have the chance to ask questions via the online chat box. Though small in scale, UT is home to no less than 1,522 scientists and 372 lab facilities offering interesting research assignments and opportunities to students. 

    Presenters: Joris van Gend, Kes Greuter & Louise Kempkens

  • 14:00 - 15:00 Presentation: Twente Education Model (TOM) 2.0

    All Bachelor programmes at UT are designed based on the Twente Education Model (TOM). In TOM 1.0, education is structured into coherent modules worth 15 credits. In order to show students how the components relate to each other and how bringing different fields of knowledge together can lead to new knowledge, we work using thematic modules. Each module focuses on a particular project. During this session, we will inform you about our educational vision, how TOM is implemented in practice, and the new approach introduced with TOM 2.0.
