Seeing things differently is urgently needed in today’s exponentially connected society in business as well as in society. Luckily at NHTV Academy for Leisure we are aware that there is a bunch of new books bringing new insights that help us liberate organisations from their industrial shackles.
For a couple of years now the Academy for Leisure has been investing in work placements for lecturers. For two days a week for a period of six months, colleagues go into ‘the profession’ and work at a company, local council or other organisation. The benefits are innumerable: updated knowledge, new networks, working once again in a different setting, seeing what is taking place in the sector, the exchange of professionals, etc. The reactions from both colleagues as well as the work placement companies have been positive. The following is an enthusiastic description of the experiences of Angelica van Dam at the internet company 'Netvlies'.
