The Other Perspective

The story of an experiential expert at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences


In “The other perspective” experiential expert Henrike Kowalk reflects on teaching practices at the Faculty of Applied Social Sciences and Law (FASSL) at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and on her role as a staff member of the research group ‘Outreach Work and Innovation’.

She describes how teachers and students struggle with the concept of adapting to people’s realities. Conversations and a questionnaire indicate that the collaboration between teachers and experiential experts is considered valuable, in spite of moments of tension. Kowalk argues for a tandem arrangement between teachers and experiential experts, in order to get even more from specific curricula.
