The Mental Nourishment Seminars are an ongoing series of educational seminars in which we attempt to close the gap between educational research and educational practice.

Mental Nourishment Seminars are informal and discussion-oriented in nature. They usually consist of an interactive presentation by an expert, followed by an exchange of ideas and experiences and/or by a plenary discussion. Seminars are generally in English and last one hour.

Target Audience
The Mental Nourishment Seminars are aimed at all faculty who are involved or interested in health professions education and/or in educational research. Others who are interested (including students) are also more than welcome to attend.

The primary goals of the Mental Nourishment Seminars are to learn from each other, to exchange experiences, ideas, and views and to relate research outcomes to educational practice and vice versa.

Mental Nourishment Seminars are presented online.

Course dates
Around 5 or 6 Mental Nourishment Seminars are organized every year.

The Mental Nourishment Seminar series are organized by The Lifelong Learning, Education & Assessment Research Network (LEARN) and the Faculty Development Task group of the Wenckebach Institute for Education and Training (WIOO).

Attending Mental Nourishment Seminars is free of charge.
