The Learning Lab develops experimental deep learning ecologies for personal growth and social impact at the crossroads of academics and social entrepreneurship. We do so as an independent studio and think-tank offering universities and partners in society a creative laboratory for new methods of creative inquiry and learning.
Besselink "I believe that with the end of systemic security in our society you cannot understand the increasingly complex world unless you participate it its creation. The same is true for our individual lives."
Our students are resourceful, bright, and want to make a mark for a not yet sustainable world. They come to the Learning Lab because they want to develop not only intellectually, but also creatively, socially, and professionally as complete human beings capable of leaving a meaningful footprint. They are entrepreneurs of the mind and practical visionaries, working on the cutting edge between learning and creating.
The Learning Lab is currently open at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) voor hoours students of UvA Free University (VU), Amsterdam University College (AUC), and Utrecht University (UU)
