Personal and Professional Development II


Admission requirements

Students of the Honours College FSW programme, Science & Society, who are in their second year of their BA programme follow this course.


You will explore your personal motives and mission related to your competences and skills in the following two meetings: PPD II Start and PPD II Finish. We will again use a flipped-classroom approach, where much of the work will take place outside the meetings.

Course objectives

At successful completion of this PPDII, you will:

  • Have a clear image of the competences and qualities you developed, your talent and main dysfunctional pattern.

  • Have obtained more detailed insight into the paths you have followed and the learning path you want to project into the future.

  • Be able to autonomously study important personal and professional questions.


Meeting Date Time
PPDII Start Wednesday 24-11-2021 or Thursday 25-11-2021 18:00-22:00
PPDII Finish Wednesday 20-04-2022 or Thursday 28-4-2022 18:00-22:00

Mode of instruction

In this course, a substantial part of the time investment and study takes place before and after the meetings. Active preparation is already required two weeks before the seminars. Preparatory assignments will be send by e-mail.

We speak English during the seminars.

The study load is 1EC:

  • 2 Seminars (2 x 3 hours)

  • 2 Preparatory assignments, including literature study and interviews (2 x 6 hours)

  • 2 Integrative assignments (2 x 3 hours)

  • Peer feedback (max 4 hours)

Assessment method

You will receive qualitative (peer) feedback on your reflections. Assessment of your participation (in the categories insufficient, good, or excellent) will be based on concise and timely execution of preparatory assignments, commitment during meetings, and reflective capacity and skill in the integrative assignments.


You do not need to register for this course. You will be enrolled by the Honours College FSW.
