Do you experience “losing” students; they have chosen a study for the practical experiences and now they are getting a more theoretical study?

Think we are still in the part that students accept the situation. Not sure about the choice of study for next year

Teachers at WUR got quite inventive in also sending materials to students so they can do some experiments at home; making videos of labwork; livefeed doing experiments themselves and telling students what they are doing. Teachers were forced to take a look at their experiments and see the elements that were crucial. The practical skills that are necessary for the rest of the study programme get priority on in-lab work. Focus on first year bachelor/master students.
