Anna Hoogmoed nieuwe Master Onderwijskunde (MEd)

Vandaag heeft Anna Hoogmoed met succes haar afstudeerwerk ‘Stage onboarding
Het versoepelen van de overgang van onderwijs naar praktijk’ verdedigd. Er is gedurende de afgelopen jaren veel onderzoek gedaan naar de problematiek van stages. Er is ook veel verbeterd in de praktijk van stages, zowel in het middelbaar (bpv) als het hoger beroepsonderwijs. Toch zijn er nog diverse verbetermogelijkheden. Eén zo’n verbetering betreft de voorbereiding van studenten verpleegkunde op de stage. Uit onderzoek is gebleken dat de psychische en sociale belasting van studenten tijdens de stage zwaar is en dat dit een belangrijke factor is die meespeelt bij het voortijdig beëindigen van de opleiding. Uitval is op zich al spijtig voor alle betrokkenen, maar als dat aan het eind van de opleiding ten gevolgde van de stage gebeurt, is dat extra zorgwekkend, ook al omdat er een grote en nog toenemende vraag is naar afgestudeerde medewerkers in de zorg.

Happy New Year

Dear website visitor, I wish you a Happy, Healthy, and Successful 2023!!! Greetings from our new home in Almelo NoordOost, which is next to Mariaparochie (the header page faces this tiny village in the region Twente). The remarkable thing of the village Mariaparochie is that, despite the only 300 inhabitants, it partly belongs to the municipality of Almelo, and partly to the municipality of Tubbergen. Don’t know why yet. Will find it out. Warm regards.

Annerieke van den Beld nieuwe Master Onderwijskunde (MEd)

Annerieke van de Beld succesfully defended her thesis for the Master of Educational Studies program today 29th of July, 2022. The question of the thesis was whether the introduction of a Professional Learning Community would help transforming schools within  a foundation for primary education towards learning organizations. The idea was that this introduction could improve the quality of education within the schools, which is much needed, given the assessments made by the Inspectorate of Education.
