Professional development in schools and companies

The development of abilities of professionals have been investigated in several organisations, like secondary schools and companies. In the project by Martha Witterholt we followed a small team of mathematics teachers in developing their expertise of teaching statistics for junior high school students.

Maarten van den Nieuwenhof investigates the way how professionals in SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) in the bio-based economy sector develop their knowledge and skills in sustainable entrepreneurship.
