Second GEMH Session coming up ft. Farshida Zafar!


This week, on Thursday May 27th, we will be hosting our second GEMH Session! Our latest episode will feature none other than Erasmus University Rotterdam's own innovation expert Farshida Zafar! 

Farshida Zafar is a Senior Fellow at the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for Digital Governance ánd Director at Director ErasmusX, Erasmus University's innovation platform. Farshida has a track record in the field of educational innovation. In the past years she co-designed, developed and implemented both educational programs as well as new (mobile) applications and platforms for educational purposes. Currently leading the ErasmusX initiative at Erasmus University Rotterdam, Farshidas ambition is to ‘future proof’ education.

Together with Hanneke Scholten and Nastasia Griffioen, Farshida will talk about how to make innovations in education truly successful, and which practical sides to keep in mind when trying to make a change. Feel free to join us, as we explore the challenges (and ways to overcome them) of innovation! 

We will share the YouTube stream link on the day before, Wednesday the 26th, so stay tuned!
