“How can we make today’s education a good fit with today’s generation? I take the view that you have to present yourself as a partner”

"It's lovely to see when 'languages' start to mix"

Centre for Applied Research - Lisette Vonk, Coordinator Fashion Technology Lab & Virtual Reality Atelier

Coming from a family of teachers and trainers, Lisette likes to be on an equal footing with her students rather than above them. All kinds of students can be found in her labs, both from within and outside the faculty, working on assignments in interdisciplinary teams.

“I love the fact that after a while their ‘languages’ start to mix, and soon they’re discussing everything from normal maps and polygons to mood boards and renders. Fashion students can go to an ICT student and describe exactly what it is they need.”
