The central theme of the conference is
Creating community is the central theme of the 2017 International Honours Conference. The goals of the conference are to strengthen honours communities on a local, regional, national and international level, to deepen and broaden the community experiences of students, lecturers, researchers and the work field, and to give students a podium to present their research and innovative projects in collaboration with Glocality (Open Access Undergraduate Academic Journal).
The conference tracks
Conveners: Lineke Stobbe and Nina vom Ende
Community is central to honours education; faculty, students and practitioners form a learning community in which close contact, learning-by-doing and co-creation are key. More recently, community has been embraced by regular degree programmes, which illustrates the pioneering and innovative role of honours education. The creating community track welcomes proposals that showcase the different forms of community in honours programmes and colleges. This track also welcomes contributions from other degree programmes that would like to share and showcase their experiences with learning communities.
Conveners: Marieke Veltman and Jurriaan Peters
The honours learning experience can take different forms. Some successful ingredients are: working on authentic tasks, adopting the students’ perspective, welcoming students’ thoughts, feelings and behaviours, linking course work to the interests of students, and offering students freedom to make their own choices. This track welcomes contributions that showcase and discuss meaningful learning experiences in honours education.
Conveners: Tineke Kingma and Isa Molewijk
What does it take to successfully teach honours students? How can you engage them and keep them motivated during their individual learning journey? Which pedagogical tools can you deploy? And what does it take to counsel, coach and/or tutor honours students? In this track we welcome proposals that discuss the role of the lecturer, counsellor and/or coach in honours education as well as experiential learning workshops on best pedagogical practices.
Conveners: Liesbeth Rijsdijk and Judith Rau
How do honours programme alumni perform in the labour market? Do employers see the added value of an honours programme or degree? And what about society at large? How do we connect with the communities we are part of? Does honours education really make a difference? This track welcomes contributions about the impact of honours in the broadest sense of the word.
Conveners: Ron Weerheijm and Sara Borkent
International collaboration is important for both students and faculty. In June 2016 the European Honors Council (EHC) was launched. The US already has a history of 50 years of collaboration in honours through the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC). In China and South Korea we see a growing interest in honours education and programmes. This tracks welcomes contributions about honours networks and collaboration at the national and international level. We especially welcome presentations and discussions about international honours exchange and study abroad opportunities for honours students.
Conveners: María García Alvarez and Jean-Renald Braaksma
Do you want to give your work a second life? This track is exclusively for students who want to share their work with more people than just their professor or teacher. Did you do interesting research? Did you work an innovative project? We welcome student poster contributions from different disciplines as well as interdisciplinary works. You might be the first to win an IHC award in your category.
