Today I was visiting a chiropractor- he says inhale, exhale and then suddenly he pushes when I’m relaxed and it sounds like a crash. He teach me about the body’s functions and give me tips on training movements that can improve my mobility. When I leave, everything feels a little better and I’m a little less tense. My PBL group has the same effect. I am affected by performance anxiety, doubts and sometimes I have a hard time to formulate me, but after the meeting everything feels a little better and I have received new inspiration to continue walking on the ONL 212 road.

Why open learning? For me who has my salary from the institution (regardless of performance:-)) it is about ideology. Openness to inclusion regardless of social status, age, gender or culture etcetera and willingness to share my knowledge. (European Commission, EU Science Hub. (2016).
