PhD-student research group Higher Education (GMW)

I set up a research project to learn more about the academic development of high achieving Bachelor’s students (i.e. honours students and non-honours students who belong to the best 10% of their degree programme). The goal of this research is to measure the learning interests and preferences of high achieving Bachelor’s students and to follow the interdisciplinary learning gains of an honours programme. The outcomes of this research project might contribute to the further development of interdisciplinary education and honours programmes. Policy Officer Education (Office of the University)
I work for the Strategy Department of Education & Research as a policy officer and am responsible for policy issues concerning minor programmes.

Doctoral thesis: "Unraveling the complexities of enacting change in undergraduate medical curricula"

I am fascinated with change in organizations; how people respond, the dynamics that occur and the complexities of organizing change for those in charge, the change leaders. Although I am interested in all sorts of organizational change processes, my PhD thesis particularly focused on the complexities of organizing change in medical school’s undergraduate curricula.

Topics: undergraduate curriculum change, medical education, complexity, challenges and strategies of change leaders, situational awareness, governance, the role of local institutional contexts in international curriculum development projects.
