  • Please let us know what we could have done to improve your experience. We are very dedicated to accessibility.

  • You are doing just fine Lindsay :)

  • Not one Ant, but once you get up to 20% of the Ant community ....

  • I am always glad to hear there are areas in the world where plastic polution is less of a problem. Good for you! It very much depends on where you are in the world though.

    Here in Leiden we have a group called [Plastic Spotter /de Grachtwacht](https://www.degrachtwacht.nl/) . Every Sunday, no matter the weather, they and their volunteers go out with their...

  • oh, how lovely. I love community action.

  • Hi Michael, can you share what element worries you the most. Would you like to see a different use of the land?

  • Thank you Michael for your answer. Is it possible for you to add it to the world map? We are trying to build an artifact together with all learners.

  • awesome link (be aware you will be taken off platform if you click on it, so maybe use a rightclick open in new window option). Can you give us a short summary of what it shows?

  • Welcome John, make sure to add a pin in our worldmap and share your introduction.

  • Welcome everybody, the team is excited to see this course start. I played a very small role in contributing to this production. You might see me once in a while, not as a staff member but an individual enjoying the course. I hope everybody will enjoy this course.

  • My institute Leiden University has announced a Digital Strategy that includes a pathway to the Blended University, and all of this is still very much under discussion in the faculties. I would say we use the inclusive definition, with a focus on synchronous and asynchronous learning activities and good self regulated skills of students. As a guidance we have...

  • Engaging students online is indeed a challenge (not just at secondary level), but it can be done. Perhaps together with ICLON VO we can create a course about it some time soon.

  • A fellow Leidenaar! I fully agree with your choice of pub. I like catching up with colleagues there.

  • Welcome back Irene. Glad you enjoyed Miracles of Human Language on that other platform as well :)

  • In the coming week it is introduction week at Leiden, also known as EL CID (Enige Leidse Comissie Introductie Dagen). The city will be swamped with first years enjoying the fruits shown in this video. My eldest daugher will be among them.

  • Are your ancestors among the Pilgrims?

  • A lovely course!

  • Yes, you can read more information on their own website https://hortusleiden.nl/en/the-hortus/ . Well worth a visit if you are ever in the neighborhood.

  • Welcome back to our digital campus Gauri, always good to see alumni :)

  • That may be an understatement. Leiden University was founded by William of Orange after the Leiden siege of 1574 during the Dutch Revolt against Spain. One of its tasks was teaching theology, and delivering the Calvinistic ministers of the Nederlands Hervormde Kerk. https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/about-us/profile/history has an interesting video about...

  • The Roman fort Lugdunum is located slightly more west of Leiden at Katwijk, but in the 17th century Leiden established the latin name Lugdunum Batavorum for its city. This fake name was part of the nationbuilding myth that the young Dutch republic was descendant of the germanic tribe Batavieren. Meanwhile the reconstructed fort shown here in the video is...

  • I recall the early days of this research field, discussing the similarities between trolls and what terrorists want, their negative consequences. So much is dependent on the effect of terrorism, that you want to learn about limiting those consequences.. or what they call fear managemen.

  • Depends on where you come from? For people in the UK or the EU it is very doable :)

  • Is it terrorism, or since a state is involved, simply a warcrime, and a crime against humanity?

  • Why do you define it as terrorism and not for instance as war, and warcrimes?

  • Very good study tips, thank you!

  • Not a Dutch translation, but I admit it is part of very specfic lingo in innovation and instructional design. (I work at the Centre for Innovation that collaborated with the team.)

  • Interesting position. What makes this terrorism for you, and not for instance simply doxxing vs misinformation, perhaps political activism?

  • Just like demonstrated here :) My name is Tanja, and I work at the Centre for Innovation at Leiden University, helping out with this course.

  • Hi Susan, thank you for your enthusiasm! I really like seeing an engaged student. Just a tech tip: if you use the button reply to a post it will appear under that post, instead of making a new thread.

  • @JanDeurwaarder Interesting request. I have put it on the list for 2022 requests. Thank you!

  • Dear Jan, while these are low intesity practices, you are right we have an obligation of care. You have already seen the interventions. We have implemented course wide warnings. Specific emails send to the team are also being dealt with. I hope this puts your mind to rest.

  • Thank you for this reflection. It resonates with me!

  • I really like the active meditations, such as mindful walking, focusing myself on being in the moment, bringing back my attention each time it wanders. Previously I also quite liked doing a bodyscan or breathing exercise while taking the train from Leiden to the Hague (but obviously, the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns put a stop to that). The point is...

  • Dear Fatma. Thank you for sharing!

  • Thank you to all who have highlighted the issue of inclusivness during meditations. We have now included transcripts, even though they do not give the same experience. Prof Chris and me will continue to reflect on how to improve your experience for those hearing impaired.

  • There are more body scan meditations throughout this course. You might try them out and see if they work for you.

  • Don't worry Ruth. You got the main purpose, which is try and try again, while being gentle to yourself :)

  • A good point Jan, but the guidance is built on years of experience on what learners might experience, and trying to combate any negative feelings that might arise. It is not supposed to give negative feelings ;)

  • Prof Chris is indeed, very, very British. It shows in the subtitles/automated transcript which only messes up some non-English words.

  • You might try switching browsers, or log out, clear your cache of cookies and try again. Hope that might help, even if just a little bit.

  • Personally, I've never appreciated zombies and other undead in the game-verse / fantasy world, for precisely the things you mention. There is a danger of being senseless perhaps, but I prefer to keep myself away from it, both in real life, and in fantasy. It is truly frightening to me, that we could reduce ourselves to such a state.

  • Hi Jan. Thank you for your interesting observation of Olympians as warriors of sort.
