Connected Learning

Political developments like the ‘participation society’ and technological changes are among those that are increasingly defining processes as networks in our society. Boundaries between organisations are fading. Collective learning and working across borders is becoming more important for finding solutions to the challenges we face. The Connected Learning platform focuses on promoting and researching (professional and non-professional) learning communities both within and outside of The Hague University of Applied Sciences.

Learning in a network society

The focus is on three main areas:

  • Learning in ‘great’ networks
  • Lifelong development
  • Towards a culture of differences
    and empowerment


The following research groups participate in this research platform:

  • Ellen Sjoer - Sustainable Talent Development
  • Marli Huijer - Philosophy & Professional Practice
  • Dick Rijken - Information, Technology and Society
  • René Diekstra - Youth & Development
