#1 Prioritise personal development
asap has focused on personal development in the past year, by giving it intention in as much initiatives as possible. Furthermore, some initiatives were set up specifically to stimulate personal development.
#2 Weblectures: part of good education
Weblectures are an increasingly important part of our education. At some faculties they are already used a lot, but at other there is still a lot of resistance against the use of weblectures asap has worked on increasing and promoting weblectures this year. By including something about weblectures within different policy documents, agreements were made on the (mandatory) use of weblectures.
#3 Make sustainable options more accessible
At our university a lot of sustainable initiatives have started the past few years. For students (and employees) these options aren’t always very attractive. The council members of asap have worked on make at least some of those initiatives more accessible.
#4 Integrate international students
Still too many international students feel lonely at our campus. asap, in collaboration with its international members, has worked hard on better integration of international students. Even though it is really hard to measure succes, we are still convinced we have achieved some good things.
#5 Protect the free-choice electives
The room for free-choice electives in the curriculum at our university is really important to be able to develop in the field that you are interested in as a student. At our university it is often already possible to take an elective within your own faculty, but it is often harder to go to other faculties. asap has worked hard on making this possible too. Furthermore asap has worked on protecting the free-choice elective that already exists, even though it was threathened at soe faculties.
#6 Student counselling: not from pillar to post
#7 More proper study workspaces
This year asap has paid a lot of attention the study workspaces, because the ask for good study workspaces from students is increasing and students experience a shortage of workspaces. Earlier the idea of installing gates at the University library was declined by the Executive Board, but this has lead the council members of asap to achieve some other things:
#8 Good English, but not at the expense of Dutch
asap has given a lot of attention on language policy. The level of English of teachers and students, but also the level of dutch of (international) students.
#9 Create order in funding possibilities
In cooperation with SOFv, asap made an overview of the funds accessible to student at the Radboud University and we researched whether these funds were actually used by students. This overview will probably be published this year on the website of asap. In addition, small changes were made on the current university website, so that it’s easier to find the right funds. asap will remain in contact with Student Life and Marketing and Communication to make sure the new website will be designed in the best possible way.
#10 Excellence is not the standard
