More information about Bram Hoonhout

At the Honours College, Bram, together with the programme assistant, works on the overall policy of the programmme, organises events and is responsible for quality assurance. He is involved in educational innovation, for example in the form of new honours programmes.

Bram himself is also active as a lecturer within the honours program with his "Designing Your Life" (DYL) project, for which he was awarded a Senior Comenius Scholarship in 2021. The Designing Your Life lectures aim to help students face their future with more confidence by letting them discover their talents and creativity, practice networking, and visualise their career paths. 

Together with Arjen de Vetten, Esther van Leeuwen and Emily Oxenaar, he is conducting scientific research on the effectiveness of this intervention. In 2023, he developed a special DYL module for students who would like to engage with sustainability and climate change during their careers.
