Grassroots en Grass shoots grants 2024-2025 awarded

21 March 2024

The winners of the Grassroots and Grass Shoots 2023-2024 have been announced. Seven (teams of) FSW lecturers will receive grants to innovate their teaching in the coming acadamic year.

This year's seven projects are very diverse in nature: from virtual reality to podcasts and from anatomy labs to a self-care module. The theme that recurs a lot is skills learning - whether it's presenting in front of a large group, giving feedback or diagnosing a problem; in most projects, the educational innovations should go on to improve the learning experience for students.
