Campus Doc documentary festival: challenging journalism students to excel

John Driedonks, Utrecht University

As part of the development and implementation of honours education the School of Journalism in Utrecht has set up a special course on documentary making: Campus Doc. This programme isdesigned to challenge the most ambitious students in television journalism to excel. In six years time the documentary festival that concludes the programme has grown into an internationally renowned student event. This year a second day was added to the festival to show several international contributions by students from partner universities. John Driedonks will share his experiences and explain how students are motivated and stimulated to perform on such a high level.

As a senior lecturer at The Utrecht School of Journalism John Driedonks coordinates a real-life converged newsroom with a focus on broadcasting TV talkshows, and on publishing multimedia content for internet. The student-run talkshows are aired on the local TV station: RTV Utrecht.

European culture and identity: A case study of honours pedagogy

Carien Touwen, Utrecht University

One of the courses of the international honours programme Europe in the World, is based on pedagogy of experiential learning. In line with the American concept of 'City as TextTM' the students discover the content and theory of the course through close observation and analyses of several European movies. Creative forms of learning are applied in a tutorial and workshop setting. Carien Touwen will explain how the concept works in the context of European Film and share her experiences with teaching students through experiential learning.

Carien Touwen is senior lecturer and international officer at the School of Journalism in Utrecht, the Netherlands. She is also academic coordinator of the Europe in the World programme in Utrecht, the first international honours programme offered at the HU University of Applied Sciences.
