As part of the Erasmus lecturer mobility programme, with Annamária Sas Grósz, we were invited to give guest lectures at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Eindhoven and also to prepare the floor for future mutual research and course development. In Eindhoven Professor Nus Waleson, the Dean of Fontys made us familiar with the university strategy and we also learnt the philosophy of THINK BIG (it is the motto of the university).
Annamária’s interactive seminar focused on consumer behaviour which fitted perfectly for students studying marketing and psychology. My lecture exploring the relation between emotional intelligence and performance gave students a different perspective of the role of human resource professionals and opened the opportunity to motivating thoughts.
We enjoyed the hospitality of Petra de Swart, who made it possible for us to meet and discuss issues with lecturers, researchers, students and staff. As an outcome we are planning to carry out two joint research works, encourage Erasmus student and staff exchange and seek to develop a joint course. Above all we will welcome one of the lecturers from Fontys in 2013 autumn.
