Dutch in Dialog
Dutch in Dialog
 

Tailored for academics and scientists:
accessing knowledge

There is more to academia today than pondering the big questions in isolation. A successful academic is also obliged to be on top of more mundane aspects of university life, such as management, meetings, fund-raising, networking and, of course, teaching courses through lectures. You have to make your knowledge accessible in a much greater range of ways, from detailed expositions for fellow academics right through to five-minute explanations of complex ideas that capture the imagination of laypeople.

That is why our programs focus on more than jargon or preparation for collegial discourse. By building on your communicative strengths, your Dutch in Dialogue program will work on the myriad ways knowledge can be transferred most effectively according to situation. We will help you communicate effectively and easily with administrators, funders, colleagues from other disciplines, students and journalists.

Academic (Chinese background):

‘The one-on-one priciple is the best way for me to learn. In just over 4 months, Dutch in Dialogue gave me intense training and my knowledge increased by leaps and bounds. I was particularly pleased with the fact that lessons were tailored to my specific work context. It is now two years since I completed my course and I am still enjoying the benefits of what I learned then.’
