Message following the press conference of January 12 202...

We hereby give you a brief update on the latest Covid press conference by the Dutch government, and its impact on The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS). The current lockdown has been extended to February 9, but because THUAS previously opted to provide only distance learning (with the exception of practical education and testing) for the entire first semester, this extension has no impact on our schedule for these three weeks.

Researcher in the spotlight: Christine Tremblay

Blog Research

Christine Tremblay, lecturer at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, is starting a weekly reading discussion group exploring diversity and inclusion. Diversity and inclusion is an important and vibrant subject for THUAS students, and discussing it can provide interesting avenues for further exploration. Christine’s personal interest in this project comes from her background in diversity and inclusion itself. “I have been teaching the course of Gender & Law in the LAW program for the past three years, and I would like to broaden the discussion to other themes within diversity and discuss the intersectionality between those themes. I am also curious to know how the younger generation reflects on those themes.”

“It’s a major challenge for any researcher to convey the results of dense research in an accessible and almost effervescent way. However, a podcast is an excellent way to achieve that. Together with Dr. Mendeltje van Keulen, professor for The Changing Role of Europe, I developed the podcast Global Gossip. During the podcast we talk to leading public figures about international politics.”

Civic Technology: empower citizens through innovative te...

Research

What will become the “new normal” after the COVID-19 pandemic is over? It’s an exciting question for many. China has proposed the idea of giving all world citizens a health passport. A QR code would allow officials to check whether someone is healthy. Technically it's possible, but is that what we really want? That is exactly the question which also hangs over Jos van Leeuwen's research area. On 4 November he held his digital inaugural lecture as professor of Civic Technology. Here, a discussion about three fascinating lines of research.

Research

In most cases, sport is teamwork. Sport is working together with your teammates and/or your coach to achieve an even better performance in a physical environment. That’s why doing your inaugural lecture ‘#Changing the Playing Field’ digitally feels almost unnatural when you are a lecturer in ‘Impact of Sport’. A remote inaugural lecture. And yet Frank van Eekeren managed to make a special event of it on Thursday 26 November. He gave his speech in the form of 3 videos, all recorded in the Morgenstond district in The Hague. Each one of these videos provided enough material to keep the conversation going during a lively talk show with very enthusiastic guests.
