Delft Student Well-being Symposium (this Friday!)

Coming Friday (19 February) the Delft Student Well-being Symposium takes place. Our mayor Marja van Bijsterveldt opens the evening. Afterwards, Olympic ice skater Mark Tuitert will share his story with his personal setbacks during his career with us. Lastly, two student psychologists from We Care For Students will speak interactively about finding motivating and dealing with setbacks, two relevant topics during this Corona period. You can watch the symposium online via https://www.twitch.tv/verenigingsraad.  Save the date!


Zit jij wel lekker in je vel? Of heb je tegenwoordig ook steeds vaker te maken met dat herkenbare “corona dipje”? Dat is niet gek wanneer je broeiende studententijd verandert in een periode die veel aanpassing en geduld vraagt. Om deze reden vindt aankomende vrijdag 19 februari het plaats. Na een opening van onze burgermeester Marja van Bijsterveldt, zullen Olympisch schaatser Mark Tuitert en student psychologen van We Care For Students op een luchtige en interactieve manier vertellen over omgaan met tegenslagen en het vinden van motivatie, wat natuurlijk een groot en belangrijk onderwerp is in deze huidige corona tijd! Het symposium zal plaatsvinden in de vorm van een livestream en is te volgen via de volgende link: https://www.twitch.tv/verenigingsraad. Kijk jij mee?

Prevent theft of your laptop

Every stolen computer is one too many. Not only is it a financial blow, but you often lose important data as well. So take good care of your laptop and never leave it unattended.

Public grounds
The campus is public ground; the faculties and educational buildings are accessible to everyone. Although this is limited during the current lockdown, the risk of theft remains. TU Delft takes its responsibility to make it more difficult and prevent incidents of theft on campus. You can help by taking the following measures to reduce the risk:

  • Lock an area, even if you will only be gone for 2 minutes
  • Do not leave valuable (personal) items in sight
  • Attach a lock to the laptop.
  • Speak to unknown visitors in the corridors around the offices to ask if you can help them or with whom they might have an appointment.

What should you do in case of theft or loss?
Report the theft of TU Delft property directly to the Service point. The staff member at the location concerned will report the theft to the police (digitally or at the police station). A copy of the report must then be handed over to the Service point and the reporter. Theft or loss of personal property, such as your private laptop, must be reported directly to the Service point. However, you must report it to the police yourself.

Be alert to safe working at home
Even now that we work more from home, it is important not to leave your laptop unattended. Especially if you share a household with others, such as in student housing, when you work somewhere else for the day or when you take it with you in the car. But it is also important to be careful with the personal data on your computer or laptop. Check the Working from home instructions on the website about how to do this safely.

Curfew extended until 2 March

Following the extension of the lockdown measures announced on 2 February 2021, the night-time curfew will also be extended until 2 March 2021.

This means that everyone must stay indoors between 21.00 and 04.30. During curfew hours, you are not allowed to go outdoors without a valid reason.

On Tuesday 23 February, the government will decide whether to modify the current lockdown measures, including the curfew. Read more about the curfew on the website of the Government of the Netherlands.

Keep an eye on the corona webpage for students for extensive updates on corona guidelines at TU Delft.

Meet Diederik Jekel in the first of 3 TU Delft pop-up lectures!

Next week you can join three special TU Delft pop-up online lectures of Studium Generale. Tune in on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday from 8-9.30pm.

  • Tuesday 2 February: Science journalist Diederik Jekel (1984) will talk about hope in times of lockdown. What does it mean to be an academic in these difficult times and what can we learn from what we have experienced?
  • Wednesday 3 February: Philosopher Toske Andreoli (1990) wrote the book ‘De mooiste tijd van je leven?’. A new look at study stress with the intention of not placing all the responsibility on students themselves for once. In her talk (in Dutch), she pleads for a supportive study climate and explains what that looks like.
  • Thursday 4 February: Philosopher Miriam Rasch (1979) proposes a revaluation of friction during her lecture. Can humans really be understood as algorithms? What happens to the things that cannot be captured in data? And why is the dataist future presented as inevitable?

UNLOCKING… Educators of TU Delft!

YouTube Preview Image

Dutch below:

Do you know your educators well? What drives them? What is their vision on learning, self-development and well-being? And what lessons have they learned so far?

In the Series of interviews – UNLOCKING…”, TU Delft’s educators share their personal stories with you: from the dreams they once had to their hobbies and passions, and the hurdles they’ve encountered. Get inspired, and get to know the person behind the screen!

Through the 10 open interviews with a diverse group of educators from the TU Delft, Career & Counselling Services want to shed a positive light on well-being. The personal stories and insights shared by those who are often only seen in their position as teacher, scientist or executive show us that the struggles and doubts you may have as a student are an inevitable component of your growth process. The stories provide insight into the various ways you may bounce back, they show where these people get their resilience, what and who has made them stronger. It sometimes takes years before you realize something, and occasionally there is a flash of insight. Examples of experience may help to speed up the learning process, and sometimes make it a little less painful. And there is no path that is better than another; hopefully at least one of the paths resonates with you!

From this week onwards a new video will be released every week.  The teaser of the first interview, with the Vice Rector Magnificus/Vice President Education Rob Mudde, can be found on the Instagram page of Career&Counselling Services. Or watch the complete interview here!

Hoe goed ken jij je docenten eigenlijk? Wat hen drijft? Wat hun visie is op leren, zelfontwikkeling en welzijn? En wat zijn de levenslessen die zij geleerd hebben tot nu toe?

In de Series of interviews – UNLOCKING…” wil Career & Counselling Services op een inspirerende en positieve wijze welzijn onder de aandacht brengen, door middel van 10 interviews met een diverse groep onderwijzers van de TU Delft. Laat je inspireren en leer de persoon achter het scherm beter kennen!

De persoonlijke verhalen en inzichten gedeeld door hen die we meestal enkel als docent, onderzoeker of leidinggevende kennen laten ons zien dat de twijfels en worstelingen die je soms hebt als student een onvermijdelijk onderdeel zijn van ieders groeiproces. En dat ook deze onderwijzers, onderzoekers en leidinggevenden dromen, twijfelen en (nog steeds) leren. Met soms kwetsbare anekdotes delen deze onderwijzers van de TU Delft hun inzichten en ervaringen over hoe zij tegenslagen zijn overkomen, wat hun veerkracht geeft en wat of wie hen sterker heeft gemaakt.

Vanaf deze week verschijnt iedere week een nieuw interview. De teaser van het eerste interview, met Rob Mudde, Vice-Rector Magnificus/Vice-President Education, is te vinden op de Instagram pagina van Career & Counselling Services. Of bekijk het volledige interview hier!
