Students need to develop self-regulation skills during their studies, such as being able to set goals, maintain motivation, and change direction if necessary. An important foundation for this is a clear vision of who they want to be in their future – their future work self. This CLI Fellowship develops an evidence-based workshop intervention to help students develop their vision of their future work self.
A CLI Fellowship is for lecturers from Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) to develop and implement ideas to innovate or improve education. With the Fellowship, researchers can spend 0.2 FTE every week on an educational project and researching its impact or effect as well. On Dr Mell’s project team are fellow researchers Dr Jorrit Alkema (RSM), Dr Maciej Szymanowski (RSM), Dr Karoline Strauss (ESSEC Business School) and Professor Frederik Anseel (University of New South Wales).
Dr Julija Mell is associate professor in RSM’s Department of Organisation and Personnel Management. She obtained her PhD in organisational behaviour in 2015 at Erasmus University Rotterdam and her diploma in psychology in 2010 at Humboldt University Berlin. Her research focuses on collaboration across boundaries – for example, bridging cognitive boundaries within diverse teams, bridging geographical and cultural boundaries within globally dispersed teams, and bridging structural boundaries within complex social systems and networks. Her work has been published in leading academic journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, Organisation Science, Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and Journal of Management Studies.
