Rianne van Lambalgen
As a teacher in transdisciplinary and transition-focused courses, I guide students to collaborate with societal partners. I believe it is my role to help students get ready for engaging with complex challenges, for example through Placemaking and systemic sustainability approaches.
In the past decade, I focused on innovating the Dutch higher education landscape based on the belief that students need more than disciplinary knowledge to become the future problem solvers the world needs. Complex problems require adaptability, as a situation can change rapidly or unexpectedly. Creative thinking helps students remain flexible and adaptable in their approach.
