Integration of research and teaching
Perspective- and enquiry-based learning: how can you help students get to grips with complex issues?
Fred Janssen, Scientific Director of ICLON and Professor of Science Education, has developed a number of tools that make it relatively easy for you as a lecturer to convert your teaching into enquiry-based learning that prepares students to deal with difficult issues and problems. You will find more information about the method and how to get started on this page.
About the method
In the video below (in Dutch), Fred Janssen provides practical tips and tools that you can use to introduce enquiry-based learning into your teaching.
Using the method in your teaching
In the video below (in Dutch), Armin Cuyvers explains how he has used the method in his teaching. ‘Starting with the bigger, broader questions empowers students more’.
In the video below (in Dutch), Nelleke Gruis explains how she used the method in her teaching. ‘Whereas I used to spend four hours transmitting information, I now encourage students to come up with complex research questions themselves.’
In the video below (in Dutch), Frans Rodenburg explains how he has used the method in his teaching. ‘We ensure that statistics is covered in the teaching throughout the year and therefore show students what statistics is important for, within the context of their own programme.’
