Description of content
In this course GSLS master-students learn to integrate their experiential knowledge (i.e. ervaringskennis) of living with a chronic physical or mental condition with their research expertise and scientific skills. They learn to cross the boundary between experience and expertise, and transform into a double talent. In monthly workgroup meetings each student will be stimulated to to formulate his/her own story of living with a chronic condition. They find out how representative an individual story is for the story of others with the same condition. The students learn to see the added value of experiential knowledge - individual and collective -to scientific research. They get a realistic view on benefits and drawbacks of patient involvement in education and research. At the end of the course, they choose whether and how they want to pursue a career as a double talent.
Central is the personal learning track of the student aimed at scientific skills, but also personal growth and learning about patient involvement. The workgroup meetings during this course will consist of a stimulating mix of – amongst others – debate, individual and group assignments, guest lectures, and serious games. Besides workgroup meetings there will be a lot of room for students to have input on the curriculum and format of their end project allowing agency over their learning process.
The end-project for this course consists of:
- Reflection essay describing how the student has integrated their experience and expertise and generated new perspectives and knowledge (80%).
- A presentation about what the student has learned and their project (20%).
Students will have to participate in at least 80% of workgroup meetings and there will be self-study assignments to prepare for the meetings.
This course will constitute a safe environment for X&X-students to reflect, exchange ideas and learn. An important part of the course is research into and promotion of patient involvement in education and research, and the pivotal role the X&X-student can fulfill due to their multiple roles as a student, researcher, etc.
