Presentation Skills

With the internationalization of study programs, more and more presentations are given in English. No matter how spectacular a project or its the findings, they only become relevant when they have been shared with others. A project is not finished until the results have been published or presented. In this course, we discuss general presentation techniques - e.g. how to use body language, the voice, and visual aids - and we give tips and hints on how to prepare and structure a presentation.

Language of instruction: English.

Urban Trends & Issues

How does tourism change a city and how does a city change tourism? This course counts as an open invitation to immerse yourself in urban contexts from a tourism-recreation perspective. We co-creatively explore the meanings of 'urban', 'urban tourism', 'urban leisure' and 'trends' by approaching it from political-economic and socio-cultural angles. We consider the city as our never finished syllabus: Brussels is our prime go-to laboratory, but we occasionally also shift our focus to other metropolitan contexts. 

At the end of this course, you will have a better understanding of how change in urban contexts tends to work, based on your own experiences and conversations with lecturers, experts and other students.

Campus Bloemenhof & Kanal

Campus Bloemenhof

Campus Bloemenhof

Courses for this programme can be held at both the Bloemenhof campus and the Kanal campus.

Campus Bloemenhof is located in the city centre of Brussels. It is on the charming Bloemenhofplein, near the Dansaert district. The square looks particularly picturesque and dates back to the Middle Ages (Zespenningenstraat used to be one of the city gates where tolls were collected).

The biggest asset of this campus: the large roof terrace where you can have lunch and enjoy the beautiful view. It is rightly the showpiece of this campus. The city centre with its shops, restaurants and historic buildings is within walking distance.

Address
Zespenningenstraat 70
1000 Brussels

On this new campus, we are committed to working closely with the neighbourhood, both in terms of lunch spots for students and activities with the surrounding schools. 

Campus Kanal is an environment where learning can take place in a variety of locations, at a variety of times and in a variety of forms. In the building you will find modular classrooms, practical classrooms (e.g. a hair and beauty salon), an outdoor classroom and learning spaces where students and teachers can plan (in)formal learning moments.
