Prof. Michaéla Schippers of Erasmus University Rotterdam has developed an online intervention where students are guided in thinking about their future. According to her research, the intervention leads to a significant increase in study success and student wellbeing.
Goal Setting at VU Amsterdam
In the Academic year 2020-2021, 8000 students from 11 educational institutions – including 700 students across three programmes at VU Amsterdam – will participate in the Goal Setting programme of Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), Erasmus University. Their participation helps to research the effects of goal setting in educational institutions. This year, Dutch secondary schools (mbo, havo & vwo) as well as higher education institutions (hbo and universities) are participating.
