Research and education, from O|2 to O2

Science, science education and educational science: these three topics will be discussed by Jacqueline van Muijlwijk in her inaugural speech. She will argue that science education in the optimal way, needs an integration of research in science and research in the field of teaching and learning. She will show examples of this integration in the field of medicinal chemistry research and the study programmes Pharmaceutical Sciences and Drug Discovery & Safety. Teaching in academia is not just abóut science but should also refléct the Nature of Science (NoS). This includes the wondering, asking, struggling, as well as the satisfaction of understanding and joy in contributing to solve complex problems. The way to do this is to engage students in their teaching. With proven innovations in learning and teaching.

Please note that the inaugural lecture will be in Dutch.
