Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience

Below you see an overview of the students currently representing DOPE at the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience.

Dear FPN students,

Dear FPN students, My name is Pleun Donkers (20) and I am in the second year of the Bachelor Psychology. The reasons for me to run for the Faculty Council have all to do with my motivation to improve things, always together with others. To achieve this, I have some concrete items on my agenda.

Firstly, the PBL concept goes together with tutors. At this moment, some psychology courses are given without a tutor. This seems to be a minor problem, but we should stick to the concept of PBL, because this is why many students come to Maastricht. But this concept can only be implemented in a proper way when there is an experienced tutor available to stimulate discussions between students.

Secondly, there must be more discipline and proactive communication about the lecture-recordings. Before the lecture starts, students must have the opportunity to print the lecture-slides, so they can make notes. There are definitely more issues that are important for improving our faculty, either it be coffee prices or policy issues. I am looking forward to hearing your suggestions and I am willing to bring these into the Faculty Council.

If you like my style and approach, vote DOPE!
