Upcoming Friday January 27th our three UCM PEERS students will present the research they have conducted for Made2Measure. In the last six months, Frederike Bauer and Elisabeth Bussu have looked at consumption behaviour of students within Maastricht while Anna Vasylyeva studied student intention to stay in Maastricht after graduation. We are very excited to see their presentations and find out the results of their studies. Both projects will be made into a report, which will be available on the site later.
Good luck Frederike, Elisabeth and Anna!
About the UCM PEERS project
PEERS is a form of RBL, Research-Based Learning. In RBL, learning is based on research that students do themselves, rather than being dependent on research done before and by others. Small groups of students will conduct research under the guidance of a senior researcher. They will act as a group, but engage in individual work as well: PEERS offers a unique opportunity to develop one’s own research topic within the context of a pre-defined research program. In this way, student researchers will make an actual contribution to ongoing research, and will experience first-hand what is involved in doing research. During the project, specific skills will be addressed at the appropriate time: e.g. problem analysis, writing a proposal, data selection and analysis reporting and presenting.
