Dr. Jolien Mouw, assistant professor at GION, is one of the new members of the Young Academy Groningen (YAG).
The Young Academy Groningen (YAG) is a group of talented, enthusiastic and ambitious early-career researchers from various disciplines at the University of Groningen (UG) and the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG). Members share a passion for science and scholarship and its broader impacts on academia and society.
Members of the Young Academy Groningen generate and elaborate on their ideas together with researchers spanning all disciplines, forge interdisciplinary ties and set up joint projects. They contribute to scientific policy and engage in activities with the broader public. Over the past year, due to COVID-19 regulations, these activities have mainly taken place online but have nonetheless been very successful in bringing early-career researchers together to discuss ideas regarding the Rewards & Recognition programme and to explore interdisciplinary collaborations.
Jolien introduces herself:
I am an assistant professor in Educational Sciences at the GION Education/Research (Faculty of Behavioral and Social Sciences). My research and teaching focus on educational innovation, instructional design of interactive learning environments, and purposeful implementation of learning technologies. In this process, I find it important to consider both the learning processes of the learner and the professionalization needs of teachers, for example with regard to the teacher skills needed to effectively implement simulations, educational learning technologies, or hybrid/blended teaching practices.
As a former primary school teacher and as a Comenius Teaching Fellow, I am specifically interested in bridging theory and practice and meaningfully connecting research and society. I believe that the YAG offers an exciting platform for young scientists who share these ambitions. Membership provides a much-welcomed opportunity to extend my involvement in our university’s diverse academic community and to engage in meaningful interdisciplinary interactions with other young scientists.
I hope to contribute to the policy working group by engaging in a constructive dialogue about science policy in its broadest sense. I find it important to strike a meaningful balance between strengthening the diversity of academic skills we value today and what we believe will be core research and teaching skills in the future.
