I aspire to create a learning environment that invites experiences and reflection upon those. I strongly believe that we learn through action and developed a Movement Workshop to enable students to experience theoretical concepts of motor development and learning (e.g., affordances, constraints, control parameter and self-organisation) by moving themselves. To support students in their process of building on their future, I developed the educational module Creating your own course to challenge and support students to develop their plans for the future.

In response to the announcement of the Dutch universities to continue university education digitally – “because it is a possibility”, I wrote the article “Digital the new normal? Why we should be hesitant towards a digital university” that was published by Joop BNN Vara.
