Dominique obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Leiden University in the Netherlands and a Master’s degree in Psychology from KU Leuven (University of Leuven) in Belgium. She is currently enrolled in a Master’s degree in Gender and Diversity, an interdisciplinary program with classes at five universities in Belgium. After this, she aims to pursue a PhD.
Last academic year, she was enrolled in the Transdisciplinary Insights Honours Programme (TDI) at KU Leuven, in which teams of students (at the Bachelor, Master and PhD level) work together on a particular challenge. Her team, STEAM in Higher Education, developed a game that aims to teach players the importance of transdisciplinarity, critical thinking and systems thinking in a fun and engaging way. Together with teammates Ilse Vranken and Raad Sharar, she will present this game at the #LearningPlanet Festival. This year, Raad, Ilse and Dominique are coaching the TDI challenge Reclaiming Education.
